Hi All,

I am running mimedefang-2.53 under CentOS 3.6 with clamav-0.87.1 and 

I am occasionally getting the following errors in my log:
Nov 24 09:26:14 cnwchcm16 mimedefang-multiplexor[9330]: Slave 0 died 
prematurely -- check your filter rules
Nov 24 09:26:14 cnwchcm16 mimedefang-multiplexor[9330]: Reap: Idle slave 0 
(pid 21967) exited due to signal 14 (SLAVE DIED UNEXPECTEDLY)

There doesn't appear to be any indication as to exactly what is causing this 
problem.  It may be an issue with my mimedefang-filter,. but if so, I can't 
really tell whereabouts the problem is occuring?
Can give me some pointers as to how I can go about finding exactly why my 
slaves are dying?
