Third bit of weirdness.  Maybe it's running after all now?  If I
do /sbin/service sendmail status as a normal user it says

/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 324: /var/run/sendmail.pid: Permission denied
sendmail dead but subsys locked

If I do the same thing as root it says:

 su -c "/sbin/service sendmail status"
Password:
sendmail (pid 3013 3005) is running...

I know darn well that it wasn't running before, until I
deleted /var/lock/subsys/sendmail.  Why do I now get conflicting reports about
whether it's running or not?
