OOM due to .xls files

the last few days i've been having trouble with my mailscanner setup.
was that mail was sucking on the hold queue so i proceeded to check:
In Debugging mode, not forking...
Trying to setlogsock(unix)
Building a message batch to scan...
Have a batch of 10 messages.
Out of memory!
MailScanner -V showed nothing wierd, or at least no missing base module.
Running 'strace MailScanner --debug' showed me that MailScanner got stuck
everytime with the same file: somefile.xls right before the OOM
Given the number of mails that was already on hold i proceeded to move that
message of the way:
#postsuper -H 6F8094AE271
from that moment on, everything ran smoothly, at least until a day after
when the same holding-mails-symptom and OOM appeared again, and by running
strace 'strace MailScanner --debug' i realized that the problem was, again,
another .xls file.
Care to note that both .xls files where < 40kb and free memory is not an
issue on the server.
Is this any known bug or something?
