Description of problem:
If you have to do a lot of restarts/reloads of squid (like changing the
configuration on the fly for a network appliance) the current initscript
will run multiple copies of squid due it's improper pidfile handling.
Those extra instances will fail with "Cannot open HTTP port" or "No copy
running". Patch supplied.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ./squid restart ; ./squid restart ; ./squid restart
