Amavisd bug ?

Everytime I have seen that error on linux guests it has been the esx server running out of resources or overallocating resources.

Sometimes its mysql throwing errors, sometimes its amavis and I have been on wild goose chases trying to troubleshoot issues with packages but it was the esx server the whole time.

Are you running this machine in a vmware environment by any chance?

I do not want to prove that there is a bug, I just ask the question whether I am the only one.
If someone else has already seen the problem, it is on many of my machines

and I have no idea how to better debugger

many people run amavis on many machines. So far you are the only one with the
problem. How big is the chance you found a kernel bug related to amavis when
many people have been using amavis for a long time without any problems?

Prove your case! Prove it is an amavis bug or start debugging as requested in
previous mail.
