slapd creates a PID file when using the pidfile option in slapd.conf. That file
is not removed 
on termination though which can become a problem if you are using SE Linux (as
long as the pid file is there you can't start a new server, and only the server
can delete it...).

Attached is a patch that makes sense for me, I hope it does for you too ;-)
