(problems with large numbers of quarantine messages on solaris)
Hey - We found something similar running mimedefang 2.52 on Solaris 9 with
everything buit 64bit. It turned out that the filenames that our quarantine
function generates were not all that random - each of the worker processes
appeared to be generating the same list of temporary file names & eventually
it all ground to a halt.
Just adding a call to srand() at the start of sub filter appears to have fixed
this - Ive been meaning to test this against the latest version & raise it as
a bug but havent gotten around too it. Chances are that if you use tempfile()
to create your quarantine files it might be the same thing.
