If there is a locking bug in dccm, that's what would happen.  It's
also what could happen if the OpenBSD threads package has a bug.

I know to which of those possibilities I'd rather attribute your problem.
That hope is consistent with lack of reported problems on other platforms.

If you watch for Message-IDs, then you might also want to watch for
Received lines.  However, while both seemed like a good idea, neither
by itself catches much spam, with the exception of missing or null
Message-IDs.  Except for missing Message-IDs, essentially all spam
that they might catch is noticed by the various body checksums.
