{sigh}  It doesn't.  But the user tries to run the tests, gets
a 'port in use' error, and runs again with '-port select'.  Now
there are two servers running -- and potentially *left* running.
He gets this a few times, and codes '-port select' into his
script.  Now they're propagating like rabbits because of a bug
in the harness.

A wonderful alternative if the test suite is the ONLY server
running.  Not.  And the fact that you say that's how you kill them
might explain why they sometimes get left around -- it's a bug
you don't see.
