Ahem. I wedged this Linux twice last week, needing the Magic SysRq key
and `f' to have the kernel's OOM killer to run and free memory to
recover. I was running scan on a folder with 31,000 emails and a
`wholesome' format string. Once I guessed what was happening I observed
growth in memory by scan's process to confirm, and added it to the long
Does this happen with any format string, or just a particular one? If it's
not hard to fix, would make sense to do it before 1.7.1 goes out the door!
