Bug in Debian/Ubuntu amavisd-release 2.11

There is a bug in the latest amavisd-release as found in Debian sid and
carried into Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic): the unix socket is incorrectly defined.
The effect is that amavisd-release will not release quarantined emails
because it can't find the unix socket. You can fix it manually or use the
attached bash script which checks it and offers a fix if required.

The reason for the problem is that Debian's packaged amavis uses
non-standard $MYHOME '/var/lib/amavis' instead of '/var/amavis' and this
has not (yet) been corrected in the packaged version of amavisd-release (it
was corrected in the previously-packaged 2.10).

(I've submitted a bug report for Ubuntu and hopefully it will make its way
back to the Debian maintainers.)
