 Committed a fix for samba in r7121. Note that httpd is OK because we use
 the apachectl script, which knows how to handle httpd correctly (I think).
 r7122 has a few more scripts where I know that referencing the pid file in
 /var/run works. I just fixed that ones that are currently running on my
 system. Feel free to add more.

 Leaving this open for now in case anyone else spots scripts where this
 process handling is not correct. I tend to think that anything that puts
 creates a pidfile should be calling the *proc functions with that info.
