While we're on the subject of samba, here's a small patch to 
correct a pidfile creation bug.  smbd/nmbd are only supposed to 
write a human-readable representation of their PIDs to their 
pidfiles, but they tend to write a little bit of garbage to 
their pidfiles as well.  This patch fixes the problem.

"If a server crashes in a server farm and no one pings it, does 
it still cost four figures to fix?"
