Bug#453958: exim4: Init script tries to kill wrong process

Package: exim4
Version: 4.68-2
Severity: minor

Hi. The exim4 script in /etc/init.d complains:

Stopping MTA:/sbin/start-stop-daemon: warning: failed to kill 2174: No such process

This happens every time it is run, including but not limited to system shutdown. I've marked it as a minor bug since I haven't noticed 
any problems apart from the warning. I guess it isn't such a big deal.
