Hmm, interesting. As Jan-Peter (The port maintainer) also just  
happens to be a MailScanner user (And the maintainer for the MS port)  
and a subscriber to the list, perhaps he could comment better. I am  
running that version without threading and have done so for ages with  
no issues, so I don't understand (Like normal ;-) ).

I'll drop him a line off list as he is a very busy lad and doesn't  
always read every post from the list.
