Re: possible mass bug filing: spamassassin 3

My system ran out of swap, with 768MB memory and half a gig of swap.
Problems went away when I downgraded to SA2.  If SA uses more than 100
MB shared memory, I'd say something is seriously wrong anyhow.

I can reproduce it within twenty minutes of starting SA3.  I run SA
smtp-time and I get enough mail that I'm not sure I'm going to start
tracking down where the problem is.  (Given that I don't know perl
and SA well enough.)
