Odd. I replaced the executable on three machines, rebooted, and all
have the same symptoms. Amavisd-new loads and runs fine, but dies at
'amavisd-new reload'. On one machine I thought I would test by
replacing amavisd.conf with a version that I initially use on Debian
machines. After doing so, amavisd-new reloads fine. I reverted to my
previous amavisd.conf and now it reloads fine too. So far I cannot
find what my generic amavisd.conf triggered that now makes it possible
for my other version to work. Still investigating.
