I think that checkstat.sh is not being used anymore in favor of bin/interchange

If I'm correct, bin/interchange will look at the .pid file to see if it is 
till running, and if not, it will start itself again.  Otherwise it will 
just go through init until it realizes it was already running, and not fork 
an additional copy.  So I think you could try a call to bin/interchange in 
your crontab.
