You might consider making the generated PID file a hidden file on *nix platforms:

< PIDFILE="$PIDDIR/$APP_NAME.pid"

> PIDFILE="$PIDDIR/.$APP_NAME.pid"

    Travis,
    I like that idea. But is there precedent for this? There are actually several files used by the script that it would be nice to hide but I don't want to do anything to far outside the norm.

    Cheers,
    Leif
