Problems starting after upgrading to 4.50.14

I could not figure any way around the error so I uninstalled and
re-installed MailScanner-4.49.7-1. I will try a newer release after hours
next time. This was the first upgrade I had problems with. I went ahead with
the upgrade after reading Glenn's fix for the problem but my problem must
have been different because there was no file to delete.
