Sophos has apparently changed some things starting with the 3.62
distribution.  The previous version that I used, 3.59,
had a sophoswrapper and autoupdate in /usr/local/Sophos/bin
Mailscanner has its own files sophos-wrapper and sophos-autoupdate
in /opt/Mailscanner/lib.  That is what has got me confused.
I also can't find what module is asking for sophoswrapper (without
the hyphen) as a configuration file (sic!), unless it is

I can't verify if sophoswrapper in version 3.59 came from Sophos
since I deleted the original tar file.

This is what I love about systems administration and programming.
Sometimes your whole world hangs on a hyphen.
