Thanks for getting back to me right away. I've attached two screenshots. The first one
is the output after running "start now -v" (everything seemed to work nicely there), the
second output is after using odbedit to stop the run with "stop". Notice that the DAQ
never stops because it gets stuck in between transitions (You can see the run status
being "stopping run" with the cancel transition button).
