Thank you. I was hoping to fix that this weekend. Have you also noticed 
that if the system hangs, and there is a dbus pid file, and so dbus 
doesn't start, the hal init script still succeeds? I'm guessing this is 
a gentoo crazy init dependency tree thing.

Perhaps with this pid file fix, the behaviour will be more consistent.
