It seems to be running as nobody.  That's what's weird.

[root hhh-gateway root]# ps aux | grep -i dans
nobody 4444 0.0 29.9 19828 18560 ? S May01 0:00 /usr/sbin/dansgua
nobody 4445 0.0 29.9 19832 18560 ? S May01 0:00 /usr/sbin/dansgua
nobody 4446 0.0 30.0 20808 18564 ? S May01 0:00 /usr/sbin/dansgua
root  29946 0.0  0.7  1424  456 ttyp1 S 11:29 0:00 grep -i dans

[root hhh-gateway dansguardian]# ls -la
total 8
drwxr-xr-x    2 nobody   root         4096 May  1 17:42 ./
drwxr-xr-x    7 root     root         4096 May  1 17:54 ../
-rw-r--r--    1 nobody   root            0 May  1 17:42 access.log

It's running but not logging anything.  Obviously (or apparently,
anyway) it's being bypassed but everything (that I've checked) implies
that it shouldn't be being bypassed.
