Another user has noted a problem in using milter-ahead on FreeBSD 8
under a VMware. Are you using FreeBSD 8 under a VM?

With a core dump, saved in work-dir, all you need to do is
# gdb milter-spamc $core_file_path
Note the type of failure reported by gdb (seg. fault, bus, abort, etc)
when it starts. With the stack trace output it should point me in a
direction to look. This assumes you configured libsnert at build time
with --enable-debug option.

I agree, but it sounds really strange that this happens only because of
a switch to FreeBSD 8, when the milters have more or less been fine on
FreeBSD 4 through 7.
