[Pm-utils] stopservice function doesn't work with gentoo

I have seen that stopservice function is looking for "running", while
gentoo init.d scripts report "started". Would be nice if it would look
for both words:

        if service "$1" status 2>/dev/null | grep -c -q running; then
                touch "${STORAGEDIR}/service:$1"
                service "$1" stop

I have tried to patch myself but I have been unable to do so :'(, please
let me know the proper solution for learning a bit

Thanks a lot
