Ok. Next suggestion would be to cd to the directory that the database is stored
in and try:
sudo chgrp milter .
sudo chmod 775 .
and see if it is a file access permission problem. The program may be starting
as root, creating its database, changing its permissions, and then dropping
owner from root to milter. At that point, it may have a problem on file
permissions. Just a stab in the dark here. If you are sharing the directory
with other critical daemons, you may want to move the database to its own
directory owned by milter:milter instead.
Milter-gris doesn't close down its database very well when the program is
restarted, and it can corrupt its database easily when you are shutting down
that often. For some reason, the database consistancy checks are off by
default in the latest version, so corrupt databases are not reset on startup.
I don't know Anthony's reason why it is off.
