Started running amavisd on my systems to help filter out spam. Amavisd
puts its pid in /var/amavis/ That can be specified easily
in the rc script. The problem I am running into is that the ps

perl: amavisd (master)

Now the way the stop command works is it picks up the pid from the pidfile
and then does a

ps -o 'pid, command' -p <pid in pidfile> | while read _npid _arg0 _argv

and checks the command name against what is in $_argo which in this case
is perl and thus fails.

Any suggestions for a workaround?
