[Mimedefang] MIMEDefang can't get directory for auto-whitelist file lock

Whenever we reboot our mail server, MIMEDefang always starts tossing 
these errors when it comes back up:

Aug  3 10:44:21 serv07 mimedefang-multiplexor[2864]: Slave 3 stderr: 
auto-whitelist: open of auto-whitelist file failed: locker: safe_lock: 
cannot create lockfile //.spamassassin/auto-whitelist.mutex: No such 
file or directory

But if we stop and restart MIMEDefang, the problem goes away; MIMEDefang 
can then grab the home directory of the user it runs as.  Any ideas as 
to why this might be happening?  We're running MIMEDefang 2.55 and 
SpamAssassin 3.1.3 on RedHat Linux Advanced Server 4.
