Subject: Re: milter-ahead runs fine, then dies on OpenBSD

I had some time, so I went ahead and figured out how to recompile
sendmail against BDB 3.x (just setting CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
and remaking). After recompiling libsnert and milter-ahead, it's running
fine for several days now. So, indeed, it was the old DB version making
trouble as you suspected. But I'll still be happy to try out the new
versions of libsnert and milter-ahead if you're interested in hearing
whether those solve the problems.

Thanks for the help,
Todd Pytel
