Bug#998908: Two identical messages about paniclog

Package: exim4-base
Version: 4.95-2
Severity: minor

If there was a paniclog entry,
then even if the problem is already fixed,
root will get *two identical* messages the next boot.
One is enough.

(Never mind the actual entry (failed to expand...) I already fixed that.
That is not my point.)
