dansguardian does not stop

hello debian people,
my problem with dansguardian started when I saw this message:

error: error running postrotate script for /var/log/dansguardian/access.log

I began to investigate, and found that the dansguardian init scripts don't 
work properly; in fact, after I type:
# /etc/init.d/dansguardian stop
I can see /var/run/dansguardian.pid still there, some dansguardian processes 
with "ps aux" and netstat -nltp shows someone still listening on port 8080, 
i.e. it seems that the stop script is doing nothing!
As a matter of fact, If shortly after do:
# /etc/init.d/dansguardian start
it complains saying that it is already running! (Failed); I think the reason 
is what I am saying about the faulty stop script.
Since logrotate issues a stop - start command to dansguardian, I strongly 
suppose that if  I manage to properly stop dansguardian, then I shoul solve 
the postrotate error as well.
One more thing: manuallly deleting dansguardian pid and processes resumes 
normal starting, but this is of no help.
I cannot figure out why dansguardian does not stop at all, anyone can help me, 
I have searched internet for hours, but no answer found.
