This error is harmless. I'm not exactly sure, when it happens, though. Saw it 
recently on one machine and made it disappear quickly, but wasn't sure how I 
did that. Check the ownership of quarantine files and what you set in 
MailScanner.conf. There's probably a mismatch, so that the learning happens 
as user root.
