whiteclnt not having any effect

We're running DCC 1.1.2 on Solaris 8, with a single DCC server and a
series of clients interfaced to postfix through a wrapper around dccproc.

We have several groups on campus that regularly send bulk mailings of a
legitimate nature that shouldn't be tagged.  Accordingly, I've added the
following to /var/dcc/whiteclnt:

ok      env_from        admcouns@rice.edu

dccproc re-creates the memory mapped file whiteclnt.dccw immediately upon
discovering the change, but e-mail from that address is still being tagged
as bulk.

We call dccproc as:

dccproc -w whiteclnt -c cmn,25,50 -l /var/spool/spam -o <tempfile>

It's been stunningly accurate against spam thus far, but we've got some
addresses to whitelist.

Any ideas why the above config isn't working?
