Bug ID: 2343
           Summary: exim_tidydb eats infinite memory
           Product: Exim
           Version: 4.91
          Hardware: x86-64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: bug
          Priority: medium
         Component: Unfiled

First, I have to apologise, but I was pretty angry and acted before thinking
and removed the file which could help, so... close if you can't go on without.

exim_tidydb got called on a possibly corrupted wait-remote_smtp file, which
resulted using up all the memory (the file was 300k in size and the OOM killer
visited at 16GB). Something clearly need a bit more checking in the code
because this really wreaks havoc (uses 100% CPU while allocating, and in the
end any process can get killed accidentally if OOMkiller isn't guessing right),
and since it's running in cron people may find a hard time to figure out what's
happening, unless they're awake at 6am.
