monit is unable to find the pidfile for anything it runs.

I'm using absolute paths for everything.
Nothing is being started or stopped using an init script.
I'm running monit as root.
I can get processes to start, and processes to stop.

However, when I start processes, monit indicates that it could not find a pidfile several times and that the process was not started. The process does start, however, as it exists when I "ps -e" it. Also, the pidfile shows up in the correct directory, despite monit's claims to the contrary.

The process stops as well, sending the TERM signal to {insert valid and existing process ID here}, but not before spitting out "monit: pidfile '/path/to/pidfile/' does not exist" after it does so. And spitting it out twice in succession, I might add.

Initially my problem was just with memcached, but mongrel server processes won't work either.

I had wondered if it might be a problem specific to centOS, because I had a bugger of a time setting anything up on it in the first place. Other than that, i'm truly at a loss.

Any ideas? They'd be greatly appreciated!
