The fact that the same code works in your other environments shows
it's something specific for this system, maybe even caused by that
system.  What did sendmail load?  Any milters?  Look at the
/proc/*/maps entry.  Run sendmail within a debugger or at least let it
create a core file and look at it.
Comment 3 Ulrich Drepper 2003-11-20 13:00:01 EST
Ping.  Do you still see the problem?  Can you run the debugger?  If it
crashes in memory handling, can you run the program under valgrind? 
If we don't get any feedback I assume this is no real problem.
