>Description:
ipmon is supposed to write its PID to /var/run/ipmon.pid only when it is running as daemon; however, it does that even if -D is not specified.

Consequently, if newsyslog is configured to rotate ipmon's log file and notify ipmon afterwards, it is unable to do so, since pid file contains wrong PID.
