If these errors just started after you upgraded Exim to 3.x, a fixed version
has been posted.  I went back to running Exim as a daemon after installing
this new version of Exim (3.02-3) and all is well now.

If you want to run Exim from inetd, you also need to uncomment the following:
# exit 0

in your /etc/init.d/exim

In addition to uncommenting the Exim line in /etc/inetd.conf

However, it seems to work when run as a daemon now.
