[Mailman-Users] Multi-Server install

I inherited a mult-server install of Mailman.

During a recent upgrade of the servers, I'm realizing the
master-qrunner.pid file is in the 'data' directory which is shared between
the two servers.
I have the  lock file set to use the hostname in the name of the lock file.

Shouldn't the PID file be in a local directory?

the old servers had a cron entry to re-start mailman every night.  I'm
wondering if there was flakiness with a shared PID file going on that was
'fixed' by rebooting mailman nightly.
