      I did have the same problem. My knowledge of linux is allmost nill.
      Have Unslung 1.11 installed and a few packages, among which
      permanently runnung mt-daapd. My scheduled scandisk tasks did not
      work. I was able to run scandisk after killing the mt-daapd service
      using "killall mt-daapd". Maybe you could try the same for the extra
      services you have running.
      As I am replying anyway, could anyone tell me how I am able to check
      wheather the ntpclient is running and syncing. This because I am not
      sure if it is running and I have not been able to do all things as
      described in the package how to.
      Anyway Ian, good luck.
