Minor bugfix in the pidfile creation function.  I figured I'd 
pass it on to you people as well...I hope this is the correct 
list.  I've been using it on an NT domain controller since May 
with no ill effects.

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?"
