This has previously been reported as a way to reproduce the error.  It 
isn't the only way (several spamassassin users have reported the bug on
the spamassassin-talk mailing list, and they don't have failing filters
involved), but it's the most reliable way.

I have reason to believe that this is fixed in the 3.23pre snapshot from
last November, but I haven't ever received clear confirmation of that.


(ftp.procmail.net seems to be unreachable today.  In fact, I can't even
DNS resolve it.)
