On Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin using amavisd-new 2.6.5-0ubuntu3 the amavis start-stop script fails to stop the daemon.

What occurs is the following:
sudo service amavis restart
Stopping amavisd: (not running).
Starting amavisd: The amavisd daemon is already running, PID: [{xxx}] (failed).

The installer script for amavisd-new has some errors as well probably related(?).

Apparently this behavior has been reported for Debian: and fixed in package version 2.7.0-1
