Description of problem:

Spamassassin was occasionally logging complaints of the form:

Jul 17 09:22:17 host spamd[26620]: Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected end of
string) at /usr/bin/spamd line 551, <STDIN> line 115.

This was also resulting in truncated email messages.

Additional info:

According to the Spamassassin FAQ, this can be solved by adding:

  LANG=en_US; export LANG

to /etc/init.d/spamassassin.

this should be fixed with the perl and spamassassin in rawhide
