No, chkconfig returns the correct result, and the proper links appear
in /etc/rc.d/... .  The daemon is complex, and there is plenty
that might slow down a shutdown.  BTW, its control script contains:

    # chkconfig: 35 97 3

so am giving it plenty of time, but perhaps not enough.  Furthermore,
the daemon name appears in the shutdown listing in the expected way.
