I do not understand that.  Line 259 is

        if (4 != sscanf(optarg, "%16x %16x %16x %16x\n",
                        &u.n[0], &u.n[1], &u.n[2], &u.n[3]))
                           "unrecognized greylist checksum");
        union {
            u_int32_t n[4];
            DCC_SUM sum;
        } u;

optarg should be the string "14603910 533bc8c7 7e075830 b3bffb0e"
but no matter what it is, I don't see why sscanf() should be going crazy.

Those %16x patterns look stupid for 32-bit values, but I don't see
what harm they could do.  What am I missing?
