Comment(by alih):

 Huh, that's weird. For me, stop leads to start-stop-daemon and doesn't
   root at om-gta02:~# start-stop-daemon -K -x dropbear
   no dropbear found; none killed
 That's because of this:
   root at om-gta02:~# ls -lh /proc/1279/exe
   lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            0 Sep 23 00:14 /proc/1279/exe
 -> /usr/sbin/dropbearmulti
 Busybox searches for dropbear in /proc/*/exe, but there's only

 Am I right to assume that if I have the latest daily snapshot of Om2008.8,
 I can count it as Om2008.9? (because I didn't reflash to Om2008.9)

 Are you running the commands on an actual device? I'm asking because it
 should have thrown your shell out upon stopping dropbear.
