[Samba] smbcontrol 3.0.30 looks for pidfile in the wrong place

Version 3.0.30 smbcontrol fails to find the pid-file when called like this:
smbcontrol -s /mydict/myconf winbindd whatever
The correct location is /var/run/winbindd-myconf.pid
which is the pid-file since Samba 3.0.23 or something like that.

It seems as though it is looking for
which is definitely wrong.

Could this be fixed, please?
