Do you get any errors when starting postfix? I received errors about the directories not being writable by postfix. Cat your postfix log and grep for warnings and see if anything stands out.

That's plausible. And in fact, I do see a number of dirs with
owner:group set to root:root under /var/spool/postfix.

break it now when it didn't in the past (there are no errors when
postfix is started).
