Yup; typo on my part. I was merely showing I tried the unreasonable things too 
(courierfilter start), and they failed too.

What I was seeing: failure for pythonfilter to stop during a ‘service courier 
restart’, specifically with the timeout alarm, would result in it failing to 
start on the way back up, which then meant spam and virus emails were getting 
accepted going forward, until something / someone manually corrected it. That’s 
a pretty bad failure scenario for us.
