You should always use /etc/init.d/shibd to start the service. Whether that's the problem I don't know, but in the future that will be critical for various reasons.
Ordinarily I'd say SELinux is the problem, but that normally affects Apache talking to the socket, not the initialization. So I'd say more likely the socket is in use and there's a stale socket file. Using -f would clear it, which is I believe the default behavior of the init script.
