Problem with SAVI-perl module

Just noticed some files getting quarantined with the following error 

"Report: SophosSAVI: SSO Instructions etc.zipx caused an error: Not 
supported in this SAVI implementation (527)"

After a little investigation I discovered that this is related to the 
SAVI-perl interface.  Using the normal Sophos command line client checks 
these files without error.

For now I have reverted MailScanner to using the Sophos wrapper, and I 
may pursue the SAVI-perl side with the module developer.

My MailScanner question is...

I am not familier with the zipx (StuffIt) files.  I think I could use 
the "Allowed Sophos Error Messages" config to ignore these errors from 
the SAVI interface, but how safe would this be?
