Hi Kai,

I got similar errors by corrupting my /etc/sysconfig/postgrey file, by 
putting text into the delay value - i.e. I replaced 660 with 66O.  I 
suggest you recreate the file (from scratch) to make sure you haven't 
got some odd binary data in their somehow (null's?).

BTW: Postgrey recommend a maximum delay of 300.  Is there a reason 
you're using 660?
