auto start and auto stop have been requested by PAA loooong time ago. Maybe he remembers if/where this has been used at all. I never used it. So if 
this is the case for others, we can easily change it and won't break anything. Like auto start can be executed before the run transition happens, check 
for a previous version of the program, and only continue when the program is actually running. Should be only a few lines of code. Auto restart is used 
successfully here at PSI, for example for the lazy logger.
