No. What are they supposed to be?

However, I just installed MailWatch and it required that I stop
MailScanner, move the bayes db from the original location to a MailWatch
specific spot, run a lint test, and then start MailScanner.

In other words when I originally installed the FSL files I did none of
what you said, but I've done it since then. Have I screwed things up?
