File name rules not working?

With the latest build of MailScanner, filename rules seem to no longer work
as intended. 


FromOrTo:  /etc/MailScanner/frules/
FromOrTo:        /etc/MailScanner/frules/
FromOrTo:       /etc/MailScanner/frules/

Each file contains the filename rules. here is the .exe rule:

deny    \.exe$   -       -

And it allows .exe files to pass. Before you ask, yes, tabs are used. This
is on a Mailborder server and they have been building these rules for years.

Any ideas?
