Description:On Red Hat 9, safe_asterisk does not properly restart
asterisk if it exited due to a crash.  safe_asterisk
attempts to restart asterisk immediately which does
not give the application time to clean up and results
in the restarted asterisk exiting with return code 1
which causes safe_asterisk to exit.


Adding a "sleep 5" just below the line "echo Restarting Asterisk." corrects the problem but may not be the best fix.

You said the magic words "RedHat 9".  There seems to be quite a number of issues relating to this release.  Might I suggest RedHat 8 or perhaps another distribution, such as Mandrake 9.1?

Personally, I plan to migrate off of Red Hat 9 since it will not be
supported as of next year now that Red Hat has abandoned the end
user market but the fact remains that many people use it.  The solution
that I found may not be the best but it should work in all flavors
of Linux.

This isn't a bug in asterisk.  This is an issue with RH9.
