No, from command line (as postfix, or indeed as root) it's 
pretty much instant. SA is reporting Pyzor as giving exit 6, 
however my Google-fu fails me on getting any useful information 
about that (or any!) return code.

Also if you look at the log fragment I posted it's less than a 
second for it to fail when running MS with debug.
