zmailer caching copy of /etc/passwd?

When zmailer gets mail from an unknown (new) user, it shows up as 'uid#N'.
Is there any way to fix this so that it gets the correct login name?
We would be willing to take a performance hit to prevent this.
(This is with zmailer2.2, but it existed with previous releases)
