[Pkg-varnish-devel] Bug#661602: varnish init script leaves pid file behind

Package: varnish
Version: 3.0.2-1
Severity: normal

The init script shipped with varnish leaves the pid file behind.
That's not problematic in itself but the return value per lsb
is 1 if a service is not running but a pid file is still
found. If you clean up the pid file the script will exit
with a more explicit return value 3.

This also applies to the version in stable. Just in case
someone would consider to fix #637110 in squeeze this
could be another candidate.
