Spam that evades DCC

Here's an example of spam that evaded the DCC counts.
How is this possible?  There were 275 entries in our sendmail
log for that day, all from the same IP address and with the
same envelope sender.  The sizes were all different, and each
was sent to a single recipient.  Here are some sample log entries:

Sep 21 15:55:26 electra sm-mta[19378]: [ID 801593] g8LKtMnp019378: from=<>, size=9956, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, proto=SMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=[]
Sep 21 15:58:59 electra sm-mta[21261]: [ID 801593] g8LKwunp021261: from=<>, size=9896, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, proto=SMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=[]
Sep 21 16:00:38 electra sm-mta[21711]: [ID 801593] g8LL0Znp021711: from=<>, size=9943, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, proto=SMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=[]

I am still running DCC version 1.1.2.  Would the latest version
catch this guy?
