[Mimedefang] mimedefang.pl dumping core

	Whenever I update my mimedefang-filter and add "$SALocalTestsOnly = 0;",
mimedefang.pl dumps core every couple of hours. My current setup is Solaris
8, perl-5.005_03, spamassassin-2.55, sendmail-8.12.10 and mimedefang-2.37. I
have most of my RBL checks disabled in spamassassin except dcc and spamhaus.
I was hoping to get these two working so it will lessen the load of rules I
need to write for spamassassin. Running mimedefang/spamassassin without the
RBL checks works perfectly and has been for 6 months now.
	Right about the time that mimedefang.pl dumps core, I see the following
errors in my maillog:

	When setting up mimedfang, I pretty much followed the steps written by
Mickey Hill. I have done two customizations, redirecting any Spam that
scores over 12 points to a separate mailbox and another checking the helo.
If there is any more information I can provide, please let me know. I do
have a copy of the core files if interested.
