Ruleset not accepted

Hello Julian,

I am trying to use a ruleset for Max Spam Check Size and it gives this 
error when I lint:
Value of maxspamchecksize cannot be a ruleset, only a simple value at 
/usr/lib/MailScanner/MailScanner/ line 2889

but MailScanner.conf says:
# Spammers do not have the power to send out huge messages to everyone as
# it costs them too much (more smaller messages makes more profit than less
# very large messages). So if a message is bigger than a certain size, it
# is highly unlikely to be spam. Limiting this saves a lot of time checking
# huge messages.
# Disable this option by setting it to a huge value.
# This is measured in bytes.
# This can also be the filename of a ruleset.
Max Spam Check Size = %rules-dir%/max.spam.check.size.rules

If it cannot use a ruleset, please correct the comments in MS.conf... 
OTOH, I would really like to use a ruleset there... Any chance you could 
provide me with a diff for MS 4.74.16 to correct the situation?

Thanks again!
