exists, maybe do recovery. create stamp file, and delete it on database

If we put the slapd PID into the stamp file, then we can check its validity -
if the PID is valid and != current PID, everything is OK. If not, then do

This probably cannot be the slapd.pid file that's already configured in
slapd.conf because that file is optional, and we want something that will
always be used.

Has this change been implemented yet? If not, I'll take a look at doing this.
