There is a patch (in one of the other messagesin this thread) that
fixes this problem. The messages were completely lacking a body, and I
failed to see this in time... All better now:-)

If I didn't offend Jules too much (I thought I asked nicely for a
beta, but he read it as a more ... assertive statement (rightly so,
english baffels me from time to time:-) ...), he'll find the time and
energy to put this in the next beta (which hopefully isn't too far
Jules, since this affects all postfix systems... Could we have one
rather soonish, please?
