Well I don't run sendmail from inetd and tried using procmail and
it also ocasionally dumps core on me (it seems like it does that when
a bigger bunch of mails comes in). So it probably has not anything
to do with inetd but with some kernel limits.

I would really like to find out what's causing this, too, because I
had to remove procmail from my system....


P.S.: My machine is NetBSD/amiga running a fairly recent -current.
