That is true the offending code is commented out.

- I originally got the zmailer-2.99.49p9 RPM from the redhat contrib
  directory and installed the  binary. 
- I then found the problem. 
- Posed my question to the net.
- Found the source relating to the problem and began to think that; Either 
  I was losing it or GCC has a serious bug.
- rebuilt the whole package from the src rpm.
- The problem seems to have gone away.

Thanks to all for all the help.

Having boosted and extoled the superior features of zmailer for the last 
few months. It is extreemly embarasing to install zmailer and find a bug 
within the first few hours. 

But that is just becuse I shot my mouth off. If I had not said a word and 
installed the software there would have not been a bug. So in a way it is 
my fault the bug exists ;)
