:-) Not for the contrib/lsb-v3 bootscripts, but yes, we need to correct 
the pid/pidfile handling in the current bootscripts and roll a new 
tarball.  I don't have the stock scripts installed anymore, but I can 
setup to use both so that I can test.  It might take me a little longer 
than the fix above did, as I haven't touched the old scripts in quite 
some time, and it'll likely be a pretty big change.

Actually, just copy pidofproc from my scripts and drop them into 
current, and just continue to always spit out a list or nothing and we 
should be good, but something is telling me it's not quite that 
simple...oh yeah, pidlist is reused.  Shouldn't be too hard to work 
around.  Anyway, I'll test that tomorrow evening unless somebody else 
wants to try it first.
