Bug Description

If you have the `dma` package installed, and run `dpkg-reconfigure dma` and then save some new settings, the permissions on the file /var/spool/dma get changed:

Before:

drwxrws--- 2 root mail 36864 Mar 11 12:28 dma

After:

drwxrwx--- 2 root mail 4096 Jul 7 2013 dma

Notice the "s" became "x"

Due to this change, running /usr/sbin/sendmail (which is a symlink to /usr/sbin/dma) shows this error:

sendmail: can not create temp file in `/var/spool/dma': Permission denied
