rc.subr question

I'm writing a custom script to start a linux daemon with LinuxThreads. 
The script starts daemon nicely, but on stopping it shows:

Stopping fmsadmin.
kill: 19790: No such process

This happens because all processes are actually threads and signalling 
one process is as good as signalling them all. But with this error 
wait_for_pids doesn't work which results in:

yehat# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/fmsadmin restart
Stopping fmsadmin.
kill: 19790: No such process
fmsadmin already running? (pid=19776 19777 19778 19779 19780 19781 19782 
19783 19784 19785 19786 19787 19788 19789 19791 19792 19793 19794 19795 
19796 19797 19926 19927).

What is the right way to describe such daemon in rc script? The daemon 
doesn't create any pid files and killing one of active processes does 
the thing.

Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow!
