That comment is obsolete, someone added code to try ten times.
Shouldn't be a problem, though.
The -a code is an ugly hack (I'm entitled to say that since I wrote it
:-), it basically jumps into the buffer and looks for a Message-ID
header. It uses the normal <> operator to do input, and if you
happened to jump into a multi-megabyte expanse of NUL, Perl will spend
quite some time gobbling memory.
To make a reliable cnfsstat, the <BUFF> needs to be replace by calls
to read(). I'll look into it tomorrow, shouldn't be very hard,
