permissions problem on startup
mailscanner at yeticomputers.com

We have something in common other than the same, odd permission
problem. I had also started to set that server up hardened and then
changed my mind. I checked everything I could think of at the time, but
since I had the server working I kind of forgot about it 'til I started
noticing the other little issues, all of which could easily have spun
out from that one thing.
I have just about a dozen production servers, all of which were Gentoo
at one time. A couple of years ago, I'd have said the same thing. :)
My primary workstation is still Gentoo, but I have enough spare time to
tinker with just one box. Not with a dozen. Oh, I was wrong about the
mailserver being my last Gentoo server. I still have two. One is for
backup storage and one is a Samba DC/fileserver. Those haven't given me
any problems at all. Hm.
