[Mimedefang] mimedefang-multiplexor slave segfaults

David,

Did as you've suggested, but no core file is showing up in
/var/spool/MIMEDefang - or anywhere else on the system. Yet repeatedly:

slave 1 (pid 14500) exited due to signal 11 (SLAVE DIED UNEXPECTEDLY)

Might the slave be effectively started from some other location by the
multiplexor, which would need to be made writable for it?

Thanks,
Whit
