I was under the impression it was the "if sendmail returns a non-zero
exit code, scripts/process dies partway through processing the incoming
message" problem. I think we discussed it a couple of weeks back.

Differing line endings usually just cause the BTS to get confused about
the package name (should be easy to fix, given testing), but the log
doesn't get partially written as in this case.
