  What happens is that the system receives DSN data, and stores
  it to spool file.  Then smtp transport agent reads the spool,
  and builds outgoing SMTP command lines.

  Somewhen back this last stage had a bug, namely it lacked
  a space in front of  "RET=" string, and thus a line that
  should have been:

	The  SIZE=  is created (and checked) on flight, it is not
	stored into the spool.   Thus you have to have running
	a binary with the bug, but have source without it.
