The stop for rc.messagebus.in just does a killall so I used the same
convention.  I mean rc.messagebus.in seems broken in many cases such as
not cleaning up the pid file.  messagebus.in is the more sane Red Hat
style scripts.  Perhaps someone who doesn't use the Red Hat style
scripts should fix it up.
