mongrel / webrick process not shutting down properly in dev env. after ^C

I'm going thru a tutorial, Agile Web Development with Rails (v3)...

I'm having an issue on my mac with the web server not quitting
properly, mongrel / webrick process not shutting down properly in dev
env. after ^C in terminal window. On subsequent attempts to restart
the web server after quit.. ruby script/server webrick

I also notice that when I update a file in the app folder I have to
restart the app on another port.

I get an error...

=> Booting WEBrick...
=> Rails 2.1.1 application started on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server; call with --help for options
[2008-11-29 13:53:39] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1

Dev Env:
- OSX 10.5, with default Ruby, 1.8.6
- Rails 2.2.2 (have multiple version installed) tutorial uses 2.1.1
  - create app with... rails _2.1.1_ depot
- updated gems 1.1.1
  --system / mongrel / webrick

Thanks for any thoughts on fixing this issue :slight_smile:

Best regards,

FYI - I found a way to stop the process...

http://railstips.org/2007/2/12/oops-i-did-it-again

comand line... (shows your process)
ps aux | grep script/server
sudo kill -9 XXXX (kill your process X is the PID)
