Yeah, I'm not sure that's practical for that reason. I'm also not sure
I'd need the strace, but instead just the regular amavisd logging?

If it ran for only the last week or so and started to do this, I might
suspect something like this, but it's been running for months without
a problem.

It also runs for at least a week before it even happens at all.
