[Openvas-discuss] How to resolve dependencies for W32.Sasser.Worm.nasl

We successfully removed W32.Sasser.Worm.nasl and performed an nvt sync
and restart with no output related to non-functioning plugins. 

I did however note that the restart I issued immediately following the
updates failed initially with an ERROR;  I went and immediately checked
the messages and dump files located in /var/log/openvas only to discover
that when I tried again a few minutes later, it started fine. (initial
output below)

We are assuming that the process had not actually stopped when the
initial 'stop' was executed.  There might be a little more that can be
done around ensuring that the processes have exited prior to stop.
