I decided to upgrade SA to 2.50 yesterday. The 'make test' really abused
my system too, but then again, it's just an old and slow machine.

I restarted MS and the first messages came through fine, even without
high loads when checking for spam. However, sometime later I noticed SA
timing out every time! Sometimes with piling up the mail and not
delivering it.

I downgraded SA back to 2.44 and all seems back to 'normal' now.
