Two points about deleting services (Well one really, just looked at from two
1) Services must have fully stopped before you delete them, or they get
marked for deletion on the next reboot (Good, solid server software:
expecting frequent reboots!)
2) The service must have had all the SCM handles closed otherwise the same
What is probably happening is that the SCM handle from the service shutdown
has been deleted, but python or something still has a reference to it that
has not been garbage collected yet.
Just a guess. Without seeing your code, it's hard to know for certain.
The difficulty of tactical maneuvering consists in turning the devious into
the direct, and misfortune into gain.
