Good, but don't go around killing processes until you have confirmed
that it's actually listening on the port.  (The pid file could be left
around, and another process could have that pid)

I would really prefer not to do the kill at all - perhaps just print out
what PID we think is still listening there.  That is: do the ldap search
test first.

Also, if you could try and use the Ldb module, it would be more
consistent (error handling etc) with the rest of Samba.
