Thanks.   Something else to learn.  I have been trying to document all 
that I have been using (skipping what I have discarded, as I don't know

It has pid files:  /var/run/miredo.pid

How would I get lock files?

I MUST include this in my docs.  I keep forgetting the file name.  This 
will probably be good enough, as once I get it working, it will be an 
auto start.  And less effort than the first point.
