Did you configure MIMEdefang somehow to use that socket?

This is my /etc/mail/mimedefang.pl.conf on a debian server:

--------- 8< ---------------------------------------------------
# Mimedefang configuration file
# This file is a perl file which gets 'require'd from mimedefang
# You can set the virus-scanner paths etc.
# See mimedefang.pl

$Features{'Path:QUARANTINEDIR'} = '/var/spool/MD-Quarantine';
$Features{'Virus:CLAMAV'} = '/usr/bin/clamscan';
$Features{'Virus:CLAMD'} = 1;
$ClamdSock = '/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl';

# DO NOT delete the next line, or Perl will complain.
--------- 8< ---------------------------------------------------

Debian modified /usr/bin/mimedefang.pl to 'require' this file.
