	That's odd.  It works well at my RedHat 6.1 (Alpha), and
	Solaris 2.6/SPARC systems.  The pid-file exists.

	This is result from queuing/logging daemon being the session leader,
	and workers (3 in this case) running under it.

	lsof might tell something interesting, also running syscall trace
	at OBSD startup of the smtpserver process could tell interesting bits.
	Is there perhaps something set in address structure which should be
	zero ?  (And thus failing the bind() operation.)

	Oh yes, also 'netstat -na' chould be usefull -- how the TCP/25
	port bindings are present ?  With fixed IP, or with wildcard IP ?
