    What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Install Prosody on Debian latest stable. (0.9.7-2+deb8u3) 2. Configure it. 3. "service prosody stop" What is the expected output? What do you see instead? # ps aux|grep prosody Expected result: prosody is stopped. Actual result: it's still running(lua5.1 /usr/bin/prosody). And when I do "service prosody start", prosody claimed it's already running. Killing using a kill command will let prosody start again. What version of the product are you using? On what operating system? Debian Jessie 0.9.7-2+deb8u3

    Please verify that you have the 'pidfile' option set correctly in the config file. Try running `prosodyctl status`, it should tell you if there's a problem with this.

    I can confirm, that this also happens with prosody-trunk build 723 on CentOS 6. Checking `prosodyctl status` shows, that `Prosody is running with PID 19960`.
