MailScanner reload not honoring all MailScanner changes

Normally when I change something in MailScanner it gets read the next
time a child dies of old age or (when I need it fast) after a reload.
But I noticed only the childs reread the config because configuration
parameters used by the parent isn't read.

The parameter I changed was the number of childs. Because of some
diskproblems we had to decrease the number of childs and it didn't work.
