Description Jeffrey Goldberg 2009-04-04 21:30:01 UTC
	When starting up spamass-milter on my system, the socket file did not
	exist by the time that the start-up script tried to change the
	the ownership of the file.  Thus the group was not being set
	to "mail" for the socket file and postfix was unable to communicate
	with the milter.

	Note that this problem had NOT occurred on a slower system.  It is
	only after a server upgrade that this problem occurred.

	Also, as speculation, I doubt that this problem would occur for those
	using sendmail as their MTA (I use postfix), because there is a
	conditional "sleep 1" for HUPping sendmail that will never happen
	when sendmail isn't used.

Fix: Modify the start-up script to make the "sleep 1" unconditional
How-To-Repeat: 	On a sufficiently fast system, include a non-default socket group
	in /etc/rc.conf


	And start this on a system that is running an MTA other than

	You should see an error at startup with chown complaining that
	the socket file doesn't exist.  Later look at the socket file and
	you will see that it has its default group of "wheel" instead of
