A pid file does not get removed after a forever stop is called.

esoupy commented Aug 7, 2012

additional info:
nodejs v0.8.5
CentOS & RHEL 5.7/6.x

Verified on nodejs v0.8.8
Ubuntu 12.04

Test case:

$ cat main.js 
$ forever start --pidFile $(pwd)/pidfile main.js 
info:    Forever processing file: main.js
$ ls
forever.log  main.js  pidfile  stdout.log
$ forever stop main.js 
info:    Forever stopped process:
data:        uid  command         script  forever pid  logfile                      uptime      
[0] yjz1 /usr/bin/nodejs main.js 6549    6551 /home/andy/.forever/yjz1.log 0:0:0:5.707 
$ ls
forever.log  main.js  pidfile  stdout.log
$ cat forever.log 
$ cat stdout.log 
$ exit

Without the try/catch block, same thing.
