The problem is even worse at our site, we have mimedefang-multiplexor
running with "-l" and get

Slave 5 stderr: seek() on closed filehandle $tmpfile at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Message/Node.pm line 305.

when there is a little bit load on the box. Is it because SA is not
thread-safe? How to solve this?

mimedefang-2.52, SA 3.2.0, sendmail-8.13.6 running.

The behaviour started with upgrade from SA-3.1.7 to SA-3.2.0.
