[Samba] winbindd pid changes when launched - is this a bug?

I took a look at the pid file generated after starting winbindd in the 
background (redhat's "daemon" shell function in the startup script).

It looks like the pid reported in the file is wrong, unless I start 
winbindd in the foreground.

My klooge in the startup file follows:

WBPID=$(/sbin/pidof winbindd)
ps $WBPID && {
     if [ $(cat $RUNDIR/winbindd.pid) -ne $WBPID ]
         echo $WBPID > $RUNDIR/winbindd.pid
unset WBPID

Just pointing this out:
