Public bug reported:

This looks similar to #74968, but since that bug has been fixed this
must be a new/regression.

The error I see on xenial with pidentd 3.0.19.ds1-7 is:

Sep 18 18:17:09 myrtle identd[43486]: started
Sep 18 18:17:09 myrtle identd[43486]: s_open("/var/run/identd/", 
O_WRONLY): No such file or directory

I checked the package in yakkety and it includes this change:

--- debian/pidentd.tmpfile      1970-01-01 01:00:00.000000000 +0100
+++  2016-06-08 21:39:12.000000000 +0100
@@ -0,0 +1 @@
+d /var/run/identd 0755 identd nogroup - -

By creating an /etc/tmpfiles.d/pidentd.conf with that line then the
problem is resolved.

So a solution would be to update the xenial package to include that
change, or maybe just backport the newer yakkety package if the other
changes look safe.
