mu 7r7b gpm shutdown failure report

When shutting down mu7r7b with a gpm server running
I get the following messages:

Stopping gpm: 2943, failed (not running?).
Disabling Internet services ...
Shutting down VNC server ...
Shutting down SMB service: smbd, nmbd ...

It appears that gpm is killed by the gpm -k command in
before reaching the kill commands in the setup script.

suggest removing the line from as detailed below:

gpm -k 2>/dev/null # Remove this line
stop-daemon gpm

Whilst investigating this problem I noted an error in the path statement
in /etc/rc.6 It is probably benign but could cause problems if new
are added.

# Set the path.

which should it be?
