I should have realized the problem you had already when you
brought it up the first time, but as I keep forgetting what
status of things has been at the time of the snapshots,
it puzzled me back then... (and then I forgot..)

Have you noticed this file ?
Of which I try to have a habit of updating so that when
things change somewhere, you could know about it.
The router *must* have up to date language of scripts.
Specifically here the 'setf' verb in the language caused
lots of N^2 kind of memory consumption problems at list
expansions, and replacing the uses of 'setf' with specific
verbs doing appends/replaces into lists without creating
copies of data and storing it into dynamic variable chains
of temporary heap space.
Another thing may have been removal of old 'sift' verb,
which for quite a while has had two alternate functions:
the 'sift' is/was alias of 'tsift'.

The syslog gets only successfull routing results, no other status
reports, should it ?? How about the info at $MAILLOG/router file ?
The INSTALL script prescribes testing by running router in
interactive mode. Doing that *should* be obvious for upgrades
as well as for clean installs, but perhaps it isn't ?
What should I put into the documentation about it ?

My own workstation is a mixture of RH 'manhattan' and 'rawhide'
series -- and an Alpha, at that. (5.1 and 5.2 development
in layman terms..)
