regarding lsb-base: killproc does not pass name parameter to start-stop-daemon
to be marked as done.

misconfiguration somewhere. Please contact [hidden email] immediately.)
there is a logic error in /lib/lsb/init-functions's killproc:
if [ ! $pidfile ]; then
name_param="--name $base --pidfile /var/run/$base.pid"
The if clause checks for nonempty $pidfile instead of nonempty $base to
decide whether --name is used.
Also --pidfile $pidfile is always used, even when $pidfile is empty.
I am reportig this as serious since sid's start-stop-daemon requires a
name parameter in addition to --pidfile when the pidfile is not owned by
root, therefore this bug causes init script failures. (#921205)
