I run MailScanner 4.43.8-1 with spamassasin 3.0.4-1.1 on SUSE Linux 9.3 
Profesional, kernel The machine is a Dual Xeon, Raid1, 2G 
Memory, moves about 20.000 mails per day. After working well for about 10 
days the server runs out of Memory with a message like:

Aug  4 16:17:34 mail kernel: Normal: 74*4kB 1059*8kB 1072*16kB 85*32kB 40*64kB 
23*128kB 9*256kB 2*512kB 1*1024kB 1*2048kB 0*
4096kB = 40544kB

0*128kB 0*256kB 1*512kB 0*1024kB 0*2048kB 0*4096kB =

4201134/4202803, race 0+10
Aug  4 16:17:34 mail kernel: Free swap  = 0kB
Aug  4 16:17:34 mail kernel: Total swap = 2104440kB
Aug  4 16:17:34 mail kernel: Out of Memory: Killed process 21212 

This happened two times now, on both crash I could see "SpamAssassin timed 
out" in the maillogs. 

Any other users know these problems or even a solution?
