Just seen the diffs from Devon's two conf files and find that one file 
sets "Debug Spamassassin = yes" and the other "Debug Spamassassin = no".

btw, why the problem occurs when I set "Debug = no" and "Debug Spamassassin = 
yes" at the same time?  

(To be more specific, not only the MailScanner process will stop at extracting 
attachments, but also its child process hangs at command:
awk {printf "%s %s\n", strftime("%T"), $0}  (see the thread "Trouble with 
Mailscanner after upgrading to 4.68 (plz help)" from "test" on 6 Apr 10:29))

Thanks for teaching.
