Just remove the pointer to a specific problem. Someting like:

/usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/CustomFunctions/, it could
not be "require"d at /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/ line 624

To bad it is a wiring problem. The fingers will simply not always do
exactly what I order them. Or not in the specific order if I want to go
at any speed. It is a minor nuisance I learned to live with. I watch out
for the common RSI causes to minimize the risk of it getting any worse.
