Bug#504467: Update

Actually, start-stop-daemon WILL start boinc just fine. The pid file contains 
a different pid than that yielded by pidof boinc. This does not sit well with 
the distribution boinc_client init.d script. Workaround: either explicitely 
set the pidfile content to pidof boinc or change the isrunning function to not 
test the pid, just file's existance (ALWAYS remove on stop). Either way, 
boinc-app-seti will then install/remove correctly.

Bug should be moved the start-stop-daemon or boinc.

(Actually, I have been running the debian boinc-app-seti version by simply 
copying the lib/setiathome_enhanced to my boinc directory and renaming it 
appropriately (since I had previously been running a locally downloaded 
version from this directory).
