Description of problem:

As per title.  Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 claims to conform to the LSB 3.0.  It
seems quite surprising to me that no one has noticed this bug.  See
$ . /lib/lsb/init-functions
$ pidofproc -p /var/run/klogd.pid klogd
pidof: invalid options on command line!

pidof: invalid options on command line!

Debian and SuSE get this right I believe.  It looks like 'killproc' has the same
