In fact, it was suggested on the spamassassin list that version
0.59-3.el5 is vastly out of date and known to be buggy and,
contrary to the suggestion here of ensuring I prioritize CentOS
repos, I would be better served to get the newer version of
per-Net-DNS from the RepoForge (extras) repository.
Other thoughts (on this or my main question in my last email
above) would be greatly appreciated.
