[Mimedefang] URI Parsing and SA

A spam passed through my system recently with the following line:


woskulceo[remove].com has been listed in the URIBL database since 9/2008,
yet the rule didn't trigger on my message.  Manually running the message
through SA gave a hit on the URIBL rule, so I'm left looking at MD.  The
URIBL rule does hit when the host part of the above example is removed.  Is
it possible MD is interpreting < in the hostname as a redirect when handing
the message to SA or breaking the message into individual parts?

For what it's worth, I'm running MD 2.65, Sendmail 8.14.3, SA 3.2.5 with
latest updates and perl 5.10.0 on CentOS 5.2 64-bit.
