Hrmph. Thats not pretty. I have millions of files in
there and doing anything in that directory takes an
extremely long time. Is there any chance DCC can start
displaying the name of the tmp file its about to start
working with? (when running in DEBUG mode). We process
over 5 million mails per day and dcc keeps the logs for
up to 14 days :/

Well.. Older versions of dcc were actually quite stable (around 1.2.5x).
