Question Squeeze upgrade killed Spamassassin daemon init scriptSpama

I followed your ISP setup in Etch... and upgraded succesfully to Lenny.
Now, a year later, I "dist-upgraded" to squeeze and have a problem.
My old cron was "sa-update --nogpg && /etc/init.d/spamd restart"
That now fails, since there is no "/etc/init.d/spamd" script.

When I type # "spamd" or "spamd stop" I get exactly 10 iterations of :
"warn: server socket setup failed, retry 1: spamd: could not create INET socket on Address already in use"

Aug 3 22:18:37.702 [18002] info: spamd: server pid: 18002
Aug 3 22:18:37.704 [18002] info: spamd: server successfully spawned child process, pid 18004
Aug 3 22:18:37.708 [18002] info: spamd: server successfully spawned child process, pid 18005
Aug 3 22:18:37.710 [18002] info: prefork: child states: II
and the cursor hangs here.....

if I hit <ctrl>-C I get
Aug 3 22:18:58.180 [18002] info: spamd: server killed by SIGINT, shutting down
and the thing is dead again....

After days of searching and reading, I can find no startup script or explanation. In Squeeze, what is the proper way to set up a daemon of sa

I am using your ISPConfig... Postfix, Amavis, Dovecot, SA, Squirrelmail, etc.
