That segment of a dccifd log file and that dccifd did not complain
about the greylist server not responding shows that dccifd did not
even try to do greylisting.

I'm sorry, but I believe the restoration of 1.3.45 included restoring
either /var/dcc/dcc_conf and so reversing a change to GREY_CLIENT_ARGS
or restoring /var/dcc/map and so reversing a deletion of the greylist
server entry.
