I ran "yum up" this morning and had a boat load of patches waiting to install.  (I declined.)
Output from "MailScanner -V"
Linux smtp.ci.juneau.ak.us 2.6.18-238.19.1.el5 #1 SMP Fri Jul 15 07:31:24 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
This is CentOS release 5.6 (Final)
This is Perl version 5.008008 (5.8.8)

If I let it do the upgrades, am I going to run into this issue?  It wasn't clear from the yum output if I'd end up on perl 5.10.
