/var/run/interchange looks to be the correct directory so why does
bin/interchange set it to VendRoot/etc?

I haven't figured out how /var/run/interchange is chosen as I assume
lib/install_lsb.pl is only used  during the installation of IC ...

In fact all the files I'd expect to be in /var/run/interchange, such
as .pid and socket, are there, so why would IC expect to find them in

eg why are these different:

bin/interchange:769:    $Global::PIDfile =

lib/Vend/Config.pm:295: ['PIDfile',               undef,            

Thank God it's Friday :)
