	%m as a format string is defined only for syslog(3); however,
	postfix's logging functions send only text to syslog(3), not
	formats; the formats are all handled with vsnprintf/vfprintf/

	Ergo, any %m passed to postfix's logging functions is not
	interpreted. Unfortunately, there are a lot of these.


	find external/ibm-public -name '*.[ch]' | grep '"[^"]*%[^efgcpuoxds"]*m'

   	This produces 961 hits currently, most of which seem to be in
   	need of fixing.


	patch each one? or try to interest upstream?
