patch to spamd

Spamd wont decrease the number of children unless there are more than min-children, but it doesn't guarantee that the number start in the min-children to min-children range.

The initial number of children should be the greater of min-children and max-spare, see attached patch.

Note that this only applies to the scaling algorithm, round-robin initializes to max-children.
