I'm a bit confused about the following part of the winbind init script:

     mkdir -p /var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged || return 1
     chgrp winbindd_priv $PIDDIR/winbindd_privileged/ || return 1
     chmod 0750 $PIDDIR/winbindd_privileged/ || return 1

I'm guessing it's only used to check if there's already a winbind  
running? Or is the directory used for anything else? Can I remove  
this and replace it with the usage of --make-pidfile in start-stop- 

Kind regards,
