...if misused! its not a bug in spamassassin, its misuse
in environment larger than it was intended for.

not to let someone think I don't value SA or Perl, while still
say what they can be used inappropriately; and this is often
bigger problem than the tool used.

the *guess* is the important word here. test it. file a bug against
dspam that althought it is 10 times faster than SA, it is less
accurate. thenm misuse it, and file another bug saying that dspam
doesn't work at all.

there are couple of solutions to original problem of mr Dale Martin,
some mentoined by others, like limiting number of connections etc. or
adding ram. the real solution is not to use SA, because it was not
projected for this load.
