    I am still having some issues with Anomy Sanitizer 1.63:
    1) It hangs occasionally while processing some messages.
    2) The sanitizer.filenames testcase fails.
    3) X-Sanitizer-Rev in the mail header does report a different version that
    the installed sanitizer

    1. Sanitizer hangs:

    I am processing about 100 mails a day and maybe every third day or so I get
    a stuck message. Some of my previous stuck message issues got fixed with
    1.62, but here are three messages which will make 1.63 hang:

    -Anomy Sanitizer 1.63
    -FreeBSD 4.8
    -Perl version 5.005_03 built for i386-freebsd

    Here's how I call the sanitizer to reproduce the problem:
    cat msg506 | (export ANOMY=/usr/local/anomy;
    /usr/local/anomy/bin/ /usr/local/etc/anomy.cfg)

    feat_webbugs = 1 # Web-bugs are not allowed.

    2. Testcases

    Here's the output of the testcases:
