When i delete a mail from the queue using webmin, i get
the following error in the qmail-send's log file:

@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx alert: cannot start:
qmail-send is already running

I'm using the qmail installation from qmailrocks.org,
but this also existes with the one from
lifewithqmail.org (although i don't think this makes
the difference). I have verified this bug at least from
1.170 to 1.190.

    This must be happening because Webmin stops and re-starts
    qmail-send when deleting from the queue, but on your system
    it is being re-started automatically by svcscan. In that
    case, the log message is harmless .. but I will deal with
    this case better in the next Webmin release.
