the init script for Puppet agent (V 5.2.0) seems to be broken. It sets
piddir=/var/run/puppetlabs for agent.pid, but the PID is not in this folder.
I find this file in the old PID folder, i. e., /var/run/puppet . As a workaround,
I hacked the init script.
In order to run "service puppet status/stop" correctly, the PID folder
should point to correct one.
Cheers and thanks for your assistance,
