I know nothing about runsvchdir, but with runsvdir, well, it's
*supposed* to be an infinite loop. It loops the service directory
forever, starting what needs to be started.

Could you please elaborate on the symptom that happens to you when
there's something wrong with a service directory, and if possible
articulate on the flaw in that service directory?
