[Mimedefang] Statistics logging: filename error

For debugging slow response of our mailserver, I tried to
enable Mimedefang logging using parameters in
/etc/sysconfig/mimedefang (on a Redhat Linux ES2.1 box).
It turns out that the wrong logging file is indicated in

# Set to yes if you want the multiplexor to log stats in /var/log/md-stats

If you look at the init-script you will see that this filename
is used in stead:  /var/log/mimedefang/stats
Also, the directory /var/log/mimedefang must be created manually.

I suggest a correction of the redhat/mimedefang-sysconfig file.
