I just ran MS in debug mode on and this is what i got:

Building a message batch to scan...
Have a batch of 1 message.
Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/mach/IO/ line 185.
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/mailscanner: WARNING: failed to start mailscanner

Could this be the cause?
