I disagree. This doesn't make any sense. That statement parses to:
If the sharedstatedir == /var/lib, use sharedstatedir, otherwise, use
/var/lib. It seems incongruous to use another variable there.

If we're going to nack it, I'd rather we just state outright that we
need to fix the code to always create the pipes in sharedstatedir,
rather than hard-coding /var/lib.

This fix was just meant to hold us over until we get around to doing that.
