Issue with MailScanner version 4.84.5 on Ubuntu

I've upgraded my version of MailScanner to test it out, but I'm having an
issue with it processing spam messages.

Consistently, any spam message will cause MailScanner to crash, meaning
that I get error messages like the following mail.log

Sep  6 14:15:51 skynet MailScanner[1397]: SpamAssassin cache hit for
message 083CA60C95.AF127
Sep  6 14:15:51 skynet MailScanner[1397]: Spam Checks: Found 1 spam messages
Sep  6 14:15:51 skynet MailScanner[1531]: MailScanner E-Mail Virus Scanner
version 4.84.5 starting...

Testing a spam message using MailScanner --debug gives the following output:

In Debugging mode, not forking...
Trying to setlogsock(unix)
Building a message batch to scan...
Have a batch of 1 message.
Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch at
/usr/lib/perl/5.12/IO/ line 63.

Any ideas on this one?
