Wouldn't it be good to know that?

Of course. I never wanted that. My intention was to hear from you
if you know about this problem and maybe to get help fixing it
myself in the old version I have. You know Perl and qpsmtpd: you
might be able to guess for reasons, if it rather is a general or
a specific problem, and where to look at. (And you might discover
that the new version suffers from it as well ...)

It is unlikly that this problem will get fixed in the Debian
package (because the version is old and qpsmtpd isn't too
widespreadly used in Debian) ... unless I propose a patch myself.
But I wouldn't mind editing the files myself on my system, qpsmtpd
requires doing so, anyway.

As it seems I would have to squashing the bug completely on my
own, this becomes less of an option. The remaining options are:

1) Leave everything as is and accept a message not getting
   accepted in long intervals.

2) Remove the Debian package and install the latest version of
   qpsmtpd manually.

I tend to go for the former option, because it's less work for
me to do.
