Subject: Milter ahead erroring out every 5 minutes Socket unsafe

--------------------------------------------------------

When installing libsnert 1.44 and milter-ahead .9 I am having
difficulties getting milter-ahead to create a socket at /var/run/. It
appears that it is creating the .pid just fine. I was able to work
around this by using the milter-ahead .8 socket that didn't die which
was in a different directory and changing the sendmail.mc file to point
to the old socket.

My question is: What can I try or check for if milter-ahead isn't
creating a socket file. Permissions on the directories are standard
root:root and 755. As a side note I am having difficulties with another
machine that is being setup with libsnert+milter-ahead for the first
time. That machine also refuses to create a socket file.

I remember this question being asked in the past but I couldn't find the
answer to it.

Here is an excerpt from the mail server that hints to the missing socket
file.
