OK, thanks for your help.  I now changed the configuration to have spamd and 
spamass-milter use different sockets to talk to each other.  After the first 
restart of spamassassin, spamass-milter and sendmail services, only the spamd 
socket was created.  After the second restart of the spamass-milter, it created 
its socket as well.  Is there a startup sequence between the three that should 
be followed to make sure they are all happy with each other?
