Any one else notice...

I really want to track this down.

So if you fancy adding a few "print STDERR" commands to the code, if you're
confident to do it, and can help work out where the timing difference is,
it would really help me.

There is a possible cause in the spam checking (caused by forking to
implement RBL timeouts), so make sure that "Spam Checks = no" for starters.

We need to compare a system under real load, with the ability to switch
versions quite easily, to help solve this. All help would be much appreciated!
