Default Clean way of closing gpuowl?

What's a clean way of having gpuowl save its progress and close, in a script on Linux?

"killall gpuowl" closes gpuowl but doesn't delete memlock, so it's not possible to restart it without deleting memlock. What's a better way?

OK, sending SIGINT instead of SIGTERM seems to close cleanly and release memlock


killall -s SIGINT gpuowl
