In my defense, those were example paths (mine don't look like that 
either).  I've put them as examples since MIMEDefang directory is owned 
by defang user, so it is one possiblity (if, as you said, one doesn't 
use ramdisk for that directory).  If somebody does use ramdisk, he'll 
probably have enough of common sense to change them to some more 
permanent location.
