Package: amavis-stats
Version: 0.1.12-7.2
Severity: normal


Due to some reason i haven't identified(*), amavis-stats' state-file
contained an incorrect offset value, which points to the middle a of
a line of the log file.
Therefore, when amavis-stats tries to parse the line, it dies with 
error message (then mailed by Cron Daemon) :

amavis-stats: parseFile (/var/log/mail.info, 235, 63385)
amavis-stats: lock /var/lock/amavis-stats removed
amavis-stats: Unknown month "" (current locale is "C")

# head -n 2  /var/log/mail.info
Dec 10 06:55:01 slxmrml1 amavis[4168]: (04168-04) Passed CLEAN,
mail_id: sA+RmInUjoa3, Hits: -, queued_as: 250 OK id=1GtHeP-0002GK-RE,
306 ms
Dec 10 07:02:32 slxmrml1 amavis[4787]: (04787-04) Passed CLEAN,
<logcheck@XXXXX.XX> -> <root@XXXXX.XX>, Message-ID:

-, queued_as: 250 OK id=1GtHlg-0002Yo-BG, 258 ms

note : offset 235 is right after "Dec 10 07:02:32 slxmrml1" but before
"amavis[4168]" so, the test /usr/bin/amavis-stats line 624 :
	if ($line =~ /amavis.*?\[\d+\]:/) {
is valid !

I guess it should be safer to make sure that the offset is right after
an "\n" when the state file is loaded.



(*) I have recently upgraded to Etch, but i'm not sure it's related..
it my just be a race condition.
