Thanks for reminding us.

I don't think the 0.97 is any different from 0.99 in this respect,
they both need this patch to reclaim old child processes on
'amavisd reload' since 2.7.0 ...

... or one can just not worry about it as the first child reaching
its $max_requests limit will eventually cause Net::Server to reclaim
its zombies which were left by previous warm restarts.
