The bug disappeared for me a couple of reboots after reinstalling the
Guix System on my affected machine. That reinstallation provided
Shepherd 0.5, although 0.5 was also tested unsuccessfully before

The issue does not manifest for me with Shepherd 0.6, 0.6.1 or Guix 1.0.

So... I think the bug was probably some kind of race condition or TOCTOU
problem that went away with a less fragmented or full filesystem (I was
really pushing the limits in that regard).

It's great that Shepherd 0.6.1 improved the PID file handling, assuming
that was the culprit.

I am closing this bug, but we can reopen it later if necessary.
