I installed SA 2.50 using CPAN.  I've gone back and re-installed using the
SA 2.50 rpm's (wasn't sure how to force another CPAN install???).  That
still didn't stop MailScanner from using 100% CPU and then timing out SA.

I have now done a complete new MailScanner re-install.  Everything seems
to be working now.  I'm even calling SA after MailScanner using procmail
and all is well.

My guess is that CPAN messed up something with MailScanner???
