initd: not starting after unclean shutdown

When vuurmuur starts it checks for the existence of the following PID-files:,

If due to whatever reason those PID-files are not cleared (vuurmuur is killed some way, host goes down due to power outage) when vuurmuur is started again it will think vuurmuur and vuurmuur_log are already running because the PID-files exist.

This causes not a single rule to be actually loaded and the Apply Changes dialogue in vuurmuur_conf to hang since vuurmuur is not started.

We shouldn't only check for the existence of the PID-files but also for the PID the PID-file references. If that does not exist, kill all occurences of vuurmuur, remove the PID-files and start everything up cleanly again.
