Odd behavior began with 1.1.35

Strange thing started up after I installed 1.1.35.  It's still working 
just fine, catching all the spam as it should--it's just truncating the 
error message that gets sent with the 550 bounce.  Sample from Sendmail 
log (lines broken artificially for legibility):

h3F96hwa026608 - - - - - - -
Apr 15 05:07:02 yetta sendmail[26608]: h3F96hwa026608: 
 from=<bjhann@hotkey.net.au>, size=1666, class=0, nrcpts=1, 
 msgid=<HDDO0Z00.400@msg.patac.com.cn>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, 
Apr 15 05:07:02 yetta sendmail[26608]: h3F96hwa026608: Milter: data, 
 reject=550 5.7.1 -S
Apr 15 05:07:02 yetta sendmail[26608]: h3F96hwa026608: 
 to=<bertha@yetta.net>, delay=00:00:14, pri=30479, stat=-S

Normally on that second line, where it gives the reject=550 message, it 
includes a little message about suspected spam, and a link to a yetta.net 
page explaining in more detail.  The line in the dcc_conf is:

DCCM_ARGS='-r -S "5.7.1. 550 Suspected spam; mail refused.  See 

Anyone else noticing this problem, or is it just me?  It's not a critical 
issue, as so far DCC hasn't caught any false positives other than Nextel 
pages and spammers don't read the 5xx error messages.  (Half the time they 
don't even recognize 5xx to mean "permanent delivery failure.")

The beatings will continue until morale improves.
