Since installing MailScanner 4.67.4 beta yesterday, I have been seeing
this warning in my maillog every time a child starts.

MailScanner[26148]: Possible syntax error on line 33 of

Line 33 in the file is:

allow   \.x\d+\.rel$            -       -

The 'problem' appears to be that on line 33, the whitespace following
'allow' is <sp>*3, whereas the front matter says

# NOTE: Fields are separated by TAB characters --- Important!

I changed it to <tab> and the warnings went away.
