Hm, samosa is on above.net and is thus in the ORBS netblock of

joey@kite:~>host samosa.debian.org  
samosa.debian.org       A
joey@kite:~>rblcheck -t
not RBL filtered by rbl.maps.vix.com
RBL filtered by relays.orbs.org: above.net has multiple open relays and
has blocked the ORBS tester.

Anyway, while I just tag ORBS-blocked mail for amusement value, if
anyone is throwing it away, this recent change in Debian email handling
may produce unwanted consequences.
