I think it refers to the first line of the following file: /usr/sbin/MailScanner (or wherever your MS main program is located).

Objet : System Crash -Returned 2 signal 0

Hi All,

We are doing our first install of MailScanner at the moment and are getting errors from the system as soon as mail hits it. Running the system in test with bare bones (ie no clamd and no spamassassin) its fine but obviously this isnt much use to us. Installing clamd the system will run fine as well however once we installed the spamassassin module and mail hits the system we have lots and lot of lines of 

"MailScanner: Process did not exit cleanly, returned 2 with signal 0"

Enabling debug in the MailScanner.conf file and running debug we get a crash with the following error message 

"Insecure dependency in mkdir while running with -T switch at /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/ line 189"

I came across something similar on the list previously which suggested a possible fix of 
Add -U -X to your # line of MailScanner file
but unfortunately I am not sure what the original poster meant. 

System details from MailScanner -v are 

This is CentOS release 6.2 (Final)
This is Perl version 5.010001 (5.10.1)
This is MailScanner version 4.84.3

Any help would be greatly appreciated
