[Esd-l] ok attachment filenames are modified

This seems to be a rather strange problem, and looking through the mailing 
list archive I couldn't find anything about it.

First of all, I'm trying to configure the sanitizer to primarily drop known 
viruses completely, I'm not too interested in mangling or anything like 
that. I have succeeded in configuring that, with no problems except for 
this one:

Any attachment seems to have it's filename modified. i.e. if I mail an 
attachment called blah.xls (which i do not want to filter out), they do 
receive it, but it's renamed something like blah34.xls. As far as I can 
tell, the numbers are random, but do increment. If I tried to email the 
.xls file again, the number is always higher.

Files that match the stripped file do get stripped.

Any help would be appreciated.
