Bug Description

The distcc log reports

(dcc_remove_pid) Warning: failed to remove pid file /var/run/distccd.pid: Permission denied

every single time it stops.

Possibly due to the two lines in /etc/init.d/distcc:

DAEMON_ARGS="--pid-file=/var/run/$NAME.pid --log-file=/var/log/$NAME.log --daemon"
and
start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile /var/run/$NAME.pid --oknodo --exec $DAEMON

Both distccd and start-stop-daemon try to remove the pidfile. Of course, once it's gone it's gone. Shouldn't be hard to work around this.

Turns out then when the file is removed, it still complains!
