I tested this and it works fine. It's also a better solution, since
several packages contain directories in /var/run and ofcourse they
expect them to still exist after a reboot.
That's a bug, IMO - they should mkdir -p in their init scripts if
necessary. It's not like that's hard to do.
Mailman is one such package (/var/lock in its case, but the
assumption is the same). When I suggested making that change to
Tollef, he wasn't very receptive. In my case I was mounting /var/run
and /var/lock as tmpfs filesystems all the time to reduce hard disk
access on a machine that was running all the time.
