Well, if you followed the instructions in the wiki/MAQ for doing an
update (and what to save a copy of, you could rather easily roll back
with that for RPM (both /usr/lib/MailScanner and /etc/MailScanner
...). In a pinch, "rpm -e mailscanner" then "restore" /etc/MailScanner
to previous version, then finally reinstall that version. Not as
simpel as the source, no ... Still doable though:-).

If it still behaves badly after that, one has to start wondering if it
is some insidious bug regarding some of the perl modules.
