For what it's worth: we've had just over 200,000 a day per host and
have not noticed this happen-- meaning I never looked for it but
suspect I would have noticed it if it happened much, in the course
of checking syslog for various reasons.  That was Solaris 8 and
Mimedefang 2.32, at that time.  (We're handling much less now
during summer session.)

I wonder what's different.
