A patch for is attached. Apply the patch with

cd /usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner
patch <

then restart MailScanner.

It logs the error message to syslog and then adds the "deliver" action 
to whatever you have set, just for safety so that no message is dropped 
because of your typo.

Due to the the list of spam actions is now parsed, as it has arbitrary 
strings (including possibly multiple spaces) for headers, and email 
addresses in it, it is no longer just a list of possible words. So it 
cannot be caught by --lint.

So it can only be detected when it is called at run-time, hence the 
extra safety measure of adding the "deliver" action.

Let me know how you get on.
