How are you stopping quagga?  Many times, the start / stop scripts that 
are often used will help to manage the PID tracking files, including 
deleting them when the shutdown script is run.  If you are stopping 
quagga with the 'kill' command, there's a chance that it doesn't clear 
out the file for you, so you will have to do it by hand.
