Using mimedefang-2.63 ...

After upgrading from SpamAssassin-3.2.2 to SpamAssassin-3.2.4
I'm getting mimedefang-multiplexor errors:

 mimedefang-multiplexor[8089]: Slave 5 stderr: config: path
 "/root/.spamassassin" is inaccessible: Permission denied

Nothing was changed in /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf

Did I miss a heads-up somewhere? Why would SpamAssassin via mimedefang
be looking in /root/.spamassassin after the upgrade? Both mimedefang and
the multiplexor are called with "-U clamav". Here is how the multiplexor
and mimedefang are being started:

/usr/local/bin/mimedefang-multiplexor \
-p /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang-multiplexor.pid \
-F /etc/mail/mimedefang-filter \
-m 6 \
-x 18 \
-U clamav \
-b 1200 \
-l \
-q 10 \
-Q 60 \
-s /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang-multiplexor.sock

/usr/local/bin/mimedefang \
-X \
-P /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.pid \
-m /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang-multiplexor.sock \
-U clamav \
-r \
-s \
-t \
-p /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock

No such errors are logged running SA 3.2.2.
