To add to my earlier comment: You are not guaranteed that the same
filtering process that handles filter_relay will end up handling
the other filter_xxx callbacks.  In fact, recent MIMEDefang releases
go out of their way to handle the different filter_xxx callbacks in
different processes.

(The idea here is that you get better paging behaviour if one process
handles all the filter_senders, and another handles all the filter_recipients,
