This definitely fixes the FILE* leak, but do we really want to abort
the loop (stop looking for more pidfiles) when fscanf fails on one
pidfile? (dunno, just asking)

   Seems to me we were doing a break anyway, so it should not change
behaviour there,

The break will get you out of the inner while (!feof(fp)) loop, but if you managed to get through that inner loop once before failing, and set done = false, you will then loop again through while (!done) and go to the next file (if one exists). If you change the break into "goto cleanup", you will skip any remaining files.

I don't know if that's important or not, but it is a change in behavior.

ACK, but let's have a second patch for after 0.9.1
if we think this need improvement.
