Hi All,


There is a bug with init.d script in the following package:


When you stop mailscanner service you will have 1 process refusing to

"Program MailScanner, 1 process(es), refused to die."


I found old Debian bug (ID 491037) and fix for it:


Please change line 99 in the /etc/init.d/mailscanner script to have the


start-stop-daemon --stop --retry=TERM/10/TERM/20 --name $NAME


Thank you,

Naz Snidanko
