BUG: Motion control 'quit" action does not work.
The HTTP control API does not appear to terminate motion upon request (quit). It only appears to stop the HTTP server.
Here are the steps I perform:
1) Start motion (the configuration file defines 3 network cameras, non-daemon mode)
2) Wait 1 minute; Issue the web command to stop motion:
$ wget http://localhost:8080/0/action/quit
3) Motion responds appropriately (HTTP code 200) and wget creates a file named 'quit' which contains the following text:
quit in progress ... bye</body>
However the motion process continues to run (> 20 minutes at last check) and continues to record motion.
4) Subsequent attempts to stop the process with HTTP control (same wget command) return the following error:
Resolving localhost... 127.0.0.1
Connecting to localhost|127.0.0.1|:8080... failed: Connection refused.
It appears that motion only stops the http server, but does not terminate the motion detection process.
