Likely I am going to break threading, but I am reading via the archive, 
I am far to slow to get the messages.

MailScanner, same as all previous installs.

Not at this time, I didn't previously.

If 'awk' (with support for the function strftime) was
available on your $PATH then all the SpamAssassin debug
output would have the current time added to the start of
every line, making debugging far easier.

I removed it an restarted MS, no change.

It is worth noting that spamassassin -D --lint runs fine. I checked 
after I moved all our config over to the new version.

Thanks everyone. I'm still looking at what might be wrong.


In 50 years, our descendants will look back on the early years
of the internet, and much like we now look back on men with
rockets on their back and feathers glued to their arms, marvel
that we had the intelligence to wipe the drool from our chins.
