I haven't seen this problem myself (I haven't looked), but it seems
likely that it is the result of a forked process created by filerun
ending and SIG_CHLD'ing the server.  The server then, for whatever reason,
interpreted the end of the fileran() process as the end of the
checkpointing process, and called $checkpoint_finished().
