Yes, I'm running FBSD-4.8p14 & I've recently updated SA-2.6x all the way to the current SA-2.63. Indeed, I had a 2-day fight with a break in a perl function that I finally found that dealt with one of the learning DBs (Bayes). Specifically, the locks on the DB became flaky. That suddenly occurred in 2.61_1. Thinking more updates would cure it, no dice. The log jam was causing a 30x jump (less than 1 sec to 30+) in the time to process a message, and breaking the scans letting spam in. After cleaning out the DB, all settled down again and messages are processed in less than a sec again -- only an occasional spam slips in -- but Bayes DB needs to rebuild to be useful again too. I've been told by one of the developers that SA-3.0 will require perl5.6.1. BTW, this is the very first time I've experience any sort of (noticeable) problem with SA and I've been using the program since SA-2.43. A great filtering tool in spite of the recent problem which wasn't fatal. Hope this helps. Best regards, Jack L.
