I don't see that Julian can do much or even little about this. The problem 
happens because the bayes_expiry takes too long. This can only happen on a 
corrupted db or a large db. If you get quite a few messages (I think it 
should be at least a few 10.000 per day, I don't have such a system, I 
can't compare) running thru your system the latter is likely the case. 
There are two options then: stop bayes_expiry at all (which will keep it 
growing, but may work out) or do it on a scheduled basis. You can also 
tweak the db size either to be very small (reducing the amount of time it 
takes to expire) or rather large (so that the automatic expiry is unlikely 
to happen). But this is all SA-related, not MS. Please go over to the SA 
list and talk about your problems. If people just keep whining here, 
nothing will change, since the developers don't know that it happens so 
frequently. And if the problem is not related to what I think the SA list 
is better suited for that anyway.
