I had the same problem after a recent upgrade and changed the permission to these settings:

drwxrwx---  17 root    www-data 4096 2008-11-03 00:01 quarantine

I think you need to run this command:
chmod g+w quarantine

It worked for me.

So, if i am looking in the config file, I see;

Run As User = postfix
Run As Group = postfix

Quarantine User = root
Quarantine Group = www-data

And I see;
drwxr-xr-x 37 root    www-data 4096 2008-11-01 01:13 quarantine

This is the same settings as before the upgrade.
