[Spread-users] shutdown and restart (clean and unclean)

We recently had a problem that resulted in a machine going down. When it came back up spread did not 
restart because the file /tmp/4803 already existed (we're using SocketPortReuse, but I don't know if 
that makes any difference or not).

So a couple of questions to help us fix this: First, does any one have an init script for spread 
that they use that that can take care of a lingering /tmp/4803 file? Second, how do we ensure that 
spread removes the /tmp/4803 file? Sending it a kill signal stops spread, but leaves that file around.
