Redhat Startup Script issue?

Hi folks,

It seems to me there is an issue with the init script on RedHat.  When the init script (*/init.d/MailScanner) does pid=`pidofproc MailScanner`
it finds itself running (the init script -- maybe NOT the MailScanner program!)  This could give you a false positive to make you think the MailScanner is scanning messages, and it may not be running.

The init script's status and reload functions are affected -- it could find the init script and/or the MailScanner perl program running.

I'm not sure how the best way to get around this might be... Perhaps rename the init script?  Julian, any thoughts?
