log pid files on centos and logrotate

On CentOS 5.5, the logrotate.d/varnish has


for the pid file, and so does the comment at the top of the 
rc.d/init.d/varnishncsa script, but then in the body of the script, it 
actually puts the pidfile in /var/run/varnishncsa.pid, so the SIGHUP 
never gets to to the log process.

Is this a varnish issue, or a CentOS issue?
