Ugo, thanks for the suggestion.  I ran upgrade_languages_conf and got
no changes in languages.conf.  MS in debug mode revealed nothing.

However, I've noticed that the mangled syslog messages correlate to
messages found in, ie I had the following:

Spam List = ORDB-RBL

I've removed the entry and I'll see what changes.

===> BTW <====

Who uses spamcop anymore for either an RBL or SpamAssassin scoring?
I dropped them from my RBLs several months ago.  The change above
may become permanent anyway because they tag a lot of stuff from
gmail, yahoo, etc.  They seem to have got their heads wedged in the wrong
place.  Anybody else feel this way???
