I think the crash report problem comes from that the init.d script tried to
stor the pidfile in /var/run rather than /var/run/ez-ipupdate. It didnt have
permissions to write there and the pidfile was missing. With no pidfile it
reported it as crashed.

I commited the patch and fixed that issue. I have not been able to test it

A tip, I normally just rip the init.d scripts from gentoo. They also use
openrc. But in this case i'm not sure if i prefer your way to do it than
gentoo version of init.d script.
