Oops, turned out I didn't.  Recompiled.

Since about 2003/08/22 09:27:17 I am running spamd with '-m 100', as
suggested here by kees.

Since Mon Aug 25 09:49:35 CEST 2003 I am running with the recompiled

spamass-milter has been running without any major problems since the
adjustment of spamd's -m flag.  Since it's not malfunctioning, I have no
new core file.  (If I get a core, I'll make use of it, and will inform
Dan.  It might still happen: the box is handling the majority of our
mail now.)

It seems spamass-milter deals badly with a situation where spamassassin
runs out of spamd's.  I guess enforcing such a situation might generate
useful core files.

However, I have no more time to do debugging: I've got to actually start
deploying the new box now.

Thanks for all your help!  It has been greatly appreciated.
