cupsd won't stop, won't start ?!

I've been fussing with my /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and, supposedly, you start, stop, and restart this thing by:

# /etc/init.d/cupsd <start/stop/restart>

This has worked in the past. What's happening now is if I try to stop it I get the error message

"* Stopping cupsd... [ !! ]".

Then when I try to start it again, I get

"* WARNING: cupsd has already been started"

If I try to kill it: "killall -HUP cupsd" it says

"cupsd: no process killed"

and there is no sign of cupsd in ps -A.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on here? How do I kill this without rebooting? There's no sign of anything in the logs except the error messages above. I thought we were supposed to be able to kill any process w/o rebooting in Linux?
