Hi Paul,

Thanks for your feedback.

It's not entirely just a rundir. Therefore has no place in /var/run.
Admittedly the file locations and directory structure could use some
cleanup. There is an issue for this in our tracker and we will address
this in some future release.

You did find the default value for that path. Both the signer and the
enforcer read the value from the conf.xml. All should be well.

The signer has an optional <listener> section which your can
remove/change. This should be no different than earlier releases of the
1.4 branch.

Best regards,
