start-stop-daemon uses a pid-file that stores the PID of the running
daemon so it knows which program to stop later. And 'xfstt --sync' causes
xfstt to sync with the fonts in /var/ttfonts. So there is not really a
problem here.

Used by Windows 3.x to store some information about TT fonts. There should
be one for every *.ttf file.
