Oh this is absolutely fantastic.  It actually turns out to be exactly  
what I needed today.  We can't go 24 hours without ferret segfaulting  
mongrel on the most completely random searches ever - and the change  
to mongrel 1.0.1 from seems to leave the pids laying around  

The --clean seems to be working great in my monit-initiated restarts  
(in production mind you :-) ) and now I can happily ignore trying to  
find the segfault needle in the ferret haystack again(*)

Thanks Bradley!

(* yes I know it's completely lazy to ignore this.   But a) laziness  
is a require virtue of systems management and b) trying to find a  
random segfault in thousands of lines of C code is no longer fun to  
me ;-) )
