RE: startup script when server reboots

That's legacy from problems I had when I was first learning and using
openLDAP, I kept finding that the actual pid and the pid in the table don't
match. It also gives me all the slapd processes running. With multiple
people using my box, I occasionally find two or three instances running and
this gives me all the numbers.

doesn't get it.
