That's the problem, it doesn't work anymore in cauldron as /var/run is
on a different filesystem to /var/spool/postfix/var/run and hardlinks
only work within the same filesystem.

Even the old way would have been broken if /var/lib was mounted
separately (although this would be very rare indeed!).

So as I stated originally, hardlinks simply won't work as a solution any

I was thinking of bind mounting only the individual mux socket.

It's not ideal, but I can't think of a nicer way.
