Multitasking

Hello all,

First off, I love bogofilter.  I get almost 300 spams a day and just 
don't worry about it.

However, I have one question.  My email comes in through a vpn from a 
store-and-forward to my linux server that runs bogofilter.  If for some 
reason the vpn goes down for a while, a bunch of mail piles up on the 
store-and-forward server, and then comes flooding in once the vpn comes 
up again.  When this happens, a bunch of obvious spam, that bogofilter 
would normally catch, gets into my inbox.  If I look at the headers, I 
don't see any X-Bogosity lines, which seems to indicate that procmail 
failed to push those messages through bogofilter.  Since it only happens 
during floods like that, I'm wondering if the wordlist database has a 
limit on concurrent accesses. 

Would anyone know what this limit is?

Thanks,

Dave...
