I've built a box with perl 5.6 now, and it's delivering mail since
yesterday. This is in a pool with 2 other (perl 5.8) machines which
do exhibit the problem with corrupt mails.
The 5.8 boxen have each had 2 resp. 3 mails "corrupt" in the last 24
hours, the 5.6 one had none.
To make matters a bit more interesting, I couldn't get the same MS on
the 5.6 as on the 5.8 machines, eg the perl 5.6 machine now runs:
ii libcompress-zl 1.16-1 Perl module for creation and manipulation of

(Sorry, "MailScanner -v" doesn't work).
I'll leave it running until next week, but this sure looks like a Perl
bug to me.
