FWIW, I have revised and improved my Solaris /etc/init.d script
for MailScanner based on suggestions from Julian and others.
See attached.  It does "start", "reload", and "stop".  It either
uses var/MailScanner.pid if there, or pkill on the oldest MailScanner
process otherwise.  I noticed in testing this that MS complains
to syslog if the pid file goes missing:

Could not read file /opt/MailScanner/var/MailScanner.pid
Error in line 165, file "/opt/MailScanner/var/MailScanner.pid" for pidfile 
does not exist (or can not be read)
