Confusing log entries

As I said, it's Monday, and I never considered partial messages. Last week I
got hammered by one of those poor African letters, and after my incoming
queue hit 25000, it seemed like it was only processing 1 at a time. I didn't
look throughout the log, just happened to see this one. I knew better from
the past, I just wasn't thinking. I didn't understand what Mr. Dijkxhoom was
Mr. Field, the log message is perfectly fine.
Thanks all for the help and concern.
