I was just installing 2.50 via "perl -MCPAN -e shell", and during the 
"t/spamd_parallel" test, the load, network, and CPU utilization went 
through the roof (it was specifically stuck at test 14/20).  I suspect 
that it's somewhere in spamd that's the problem (and may only be 
something that comes up once, as someone else suggested).  As soon as 
that test was over (and it took a LONG time), everything went back to 

I'll have to wait and see if it keeps up.  I hope not, as I've been 
waiting for 2.50 for a while.

(I'm cc'ing sa-talk on this, in case they have any other insights)

System notes: freebsd 4.2, dual p2-350, 128k ram, and in case it 
matters it's on a 58k link to the net.  Mailscanner version is 4.12-2.
