The link suggests that the problem was found and fixed, does that mean i 
should not get flooded with temp files from MailScanner 4.84.6 to which i 
updated only a couple of weeks ago?

I am using sendmail but i get tons of tmp files in /tmp and 

At the moment i am using a cron job to just delete everything in those 
directories on a once per week basis.

A fix would be nice though..... :)
