I don't this you have to make the config executable

Looks good

Try my nasty start script:

#! /bin/sh
kill `cat /home/mrtg/mrtg.pid`
rm -f /home/mrtg/mrtg.pid
/usr/bin/perl -w /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/mrtg /home/mrtg/mrtg.cfg\
--logging /var/log/mrtg.log

Run this script as a cron every 4 hours. I do this so my graphs are
synced with NTP time. I do not find MRTG ever fails, though.
Or write a script to check the pid every <whatever> mins, restart if 
pid not present.

been running MRTG this way for 2 years, no gotchas I can think of.
