Problems with sendmail 8.13.7 and the startup script

Morning all

I was getting a large number of orphaned df files with the stock CentOS
4.3 (8.13.1 patched with bug fixes up to 8.13.6).

According to the release notes for 8.13.7 this was fixed (and it is!)
but there is now another issue.

There is a known issue with 8.13.7 (fixed in 8.13.8) where the PID file
is deleted.

Therefore Jules init script is unable to stop the process.

Upgrading to 8.13.8 fixes both issues...
