sendreceive a shutdown to pfSensefrom the vSphere client. The error message was:

Indeed, the first attempt fails, if you try it again it's successful. Not something I have time to dig into at the moment.
Thanks. I can live with that workaround.
I only have brief and irregular windows of opportunity to test, so didn't try a second time.
postfix not working on 2.2 is the show-stopper for me at the moment.
This may or may not be related but I noticed the following error in a test update to 2.2 today.
It also appeared in previous update tests but I missed it. It occurs right after re-install of Open VMware Tools.
