SuSE and MailScanner

Gah, I'm prolific tonight; the travails of an unfamiliar system.

A client is having me set up MailScanner with Postfix.

Run As User = postfix
Run As Group = postfix
Incoming Queue Dir = /var/spool/postfix/hold
Outgoing Queue Dir = /var/spool/postfix/incoming
MTA = postfix

Messages are being sent to the hold queue by Postfix, but MailScanner 
never picks them up.  I see the MailScanner process waiting for messages 
(as it states in ps aux), but it never actually sees the messages 
sitting there.  The directories in question are owned by 
postfix:postfix; what else should I check?
