[Bug 277120] [NEW] openssh-server init script contains irrelevant --pidfile argument to start-stop-daemon

Public bug reported:

openssh-server's init script passes the --pidfile argument to start-
stop-daemon when starting sshd, but this appears to be irrelevant.

On an Intrepid machine I changed the argument to a non-default value and
still the default /var/run/sshd.pid was created. This appears to be
because sshd creates the file itself (controlled by the PidFile config
option which defaults to to /var/run/sshd.pid).

I suggest removing this from at least the "start" stanza as it gives the
impression that it will be honoured when it will not.
