It's in 3.0.2 on RH9. But the setup is a little unusual. The system in
question runs Communigate Pro and the interface to SA is CGPSA ver. 1.4
CGPSA doesn't use either spamc or spamd but instead it uses
Mail::SpamAssassin directly. I don't know if this can have any impact -
I'd have imagined that something low-level like locking would be done
in the library, and a cursory glance at SpamAssassin.pm looks like this
IS indeed the case, but what would I know ?
