Yves asked me to forward this to the list.

I don't know why the file is in dos format, maybe John can find if it's 
the file or apache convert it ?
Well if you don't want to wait for the next sanitizer try :
dos2unix testzip.pl
sysutils package on debian

It seems that procmail on RedHat don't use path. Maybe somebody can 
confirm. Actually, I only use debian and mandrake.
You can try to put
in /etc/procmailrc and watch procmaillog

mktemp is egally used by sanitizer for macro scanning
So a workaround could be to set
in top of /etc/procmailrc
/usr/bin is to catch unzip

It could be fine if somebody can test this. Thanks.
