That's worth knowing - do you know how big the buffer is likely to be? I'm
thinking worst case of a 10 MB zip in an email, maybe expanding to 20 MB.

Looks like it's an issue with the compat mode for older versions of
mount_mfs. Disabling the default of compat mode for being called as
mount_mfs solves my problem. I'll probably look to providing a patch that
allows compat mode to be disabled at run time.

If I only posted to one mailing list I would. However I post to a number
and I really doubt that this list wants to see the traffic for amavis-users
etc :) I'm just fed up of people paying no attention to the lines below and
CCing me on everything - I've never found getting the same email twice to
have any benefit.
Please DO NOT send me ANY email directly unless it's a privacy issue.
Reply-to mangled to assist those who don't read the above.
