Oh, ok, I hadn't checked if it was still running,  but I do remember running
killall -9 rancid-run before I had done that anyway.  So I guess
inadvertently I had made sure it wasn't running, but not really consciously.

you should actually check that its really not running before removing that.
it could have been stuck or it could be a left-over from a system crash.
