CloudLinux/spamd monitoring issue (shows failed when up)

I have a server running CloudLinux and I have been running MailScanner but decided, for various reasons, to take it off and go back to plain old spamd.

I have it all running back the way it was:

[[email protected]] ~ >> /scripts/restartsrv_spamd --status
spamd (/usr/bin/spamd -d --allowed-ips= --pidfile=/var/run/ --max-children=5) running as root with PID 4171
spamd (spamd child) running as root with PID 4474
spamd (spamd child) running as root with PID 4534
[[email protected]] ~ >>
But checksrvd is constantly showing it as failing:

spamd failed @ Sat Sep 18 20:01:42 2010. A restart was attempted automagically.
Service Check Method:  [check command]

Cmd Service Check Raw Output: Spamd is not running
I've reinstalled exim, reset it to defaults, did a force update, then force updated the whole cPanel shebang, and nothing. Can't figure out why it won't see that spamd is running.

I did the whole process on all servers, and every server but this one went fine, though this is the only one running CloudLinux.

Anyone seen this before or have any ideas?
