Upgraded three mail gateways to milter-ahead 1.5.123 and added
milter-link 0.3.16 to them yesterday. Rest of system (RH AS4) left
untouched.

I rebuild various /etc/mail/*.db files at 0500 each morning and noticed
the following in the logs of these three hosts. Did not see this
previously when I just ran (an earlier version of) milter-ahead on these
three machines. 

BUT on eight other mail gateways on which I run milter-link 0.3.16 (but
without milter-ahead) I have never experienced this problem after
rebuilding 'access.db'.

The problem is cleared when the milters are explicitly stopped then
started on these three machines. Have not had to do this previously.
Have made the obvious checks and all is OK. What am I missing?
