Quarantine path issue

I'm not sure if this is a configuration issue with MailScanner or a 
Mailwatch issue.

Something has recently changed with my install and I'm not sure where I 
should be looking. Until a couple of days ago, MailScanner was storing 
spam messages in /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/<date>/. Mailwatch 
could see this directory and was working as expected. I have the usual 
spam action and high spam action set to store, but after a restart of 
the service I can now see that Mailscanner is now storing spam in a sub 
directory called spam, this is causing issues with MailWatch not seeing 
this directory and I'm now unable to release those emails.

Has the default location for the store action changes, or is this a 
Mailwatch configuration issue?

Thanks in advance
