I believe I've seen this problem in earlier versions than dcc-1.3.95
as well.  Apparently, if whiteclnt.dccw is absent, `dccm' is unable to
create one.  It logs messages like this:

  Sep 15 13:30:08 setup01 dccm[7407]: [ID 702911 mail.error] unlink(whiteclnt.dccx): No such file or directory
  Sep 15 13:30:08 setup01 dccm[7407]: [ID 702911 mail.error] rename(whiteclnt.dccx, whiteclnt.dccw): No such file or directory
  Sep 15 13:30:08 setup01 dccm[7407]: [ID 702911 mail.error] impossible size of whitelist whiteclnt.dccw: 42108
  Sep 15 13:30:08 setup01 dccm[7407]: [ID 702911 mail.notice] 1.3.95 listening to inet:3331 with /usr/local/dcc

Afterwards, there's no whiteclnt.dccw file.  I solved it by copying one
that was correct for an earlier version:

  # ll -t whiteclnt*
  -rw-r--r--   1 daemon   bin         3993 Sep 15 13:38 whiteclnt
  -rw-r--r--   1 daemon   bin        47484 Jun  9 16:12 whiteclnt.dccw

After restarting `dccm', it created a new one:

  # ll -t whiteclnt*
  -rw-r--r--   1 daemon   other      47484 Sep 15 16:47 whiteclnt.dccw
  -rw-r--r--   1 daemon   bin         3993 Sep 15 13:38 whiteclnt

This time, it logged only this message:

  Sep 15 16:48:23 setup01 dccm[7688]: [ID 702911 mail.notice] 1.3.95 listening to inet:3331 with /usr/local/dcc
