Since I haven't heard any real objections, I have checked in the
proposed patch with minor changes. The checked-in patch can be found

Main changes:
- pidofproc should only return pids of running processes
- programs should delete their pidfile when they are stopped
- checking the status of a program should allow for script-based
- killproc should delete the pidfile,
  when the program has been terminated

I think the changes should be ok, but feel free to rise any concerns.

A colour annotated version of all changes in the System Initialization
section since gLSB 1.3.0 can be found here
Changes before August 12 (beginning of LSB v1.9 Public Review) are
marked in green, changes thereafter in red.
