	Ah, I should have figured this one out..
	Yes, of course you used definitions which were default up until
	last week when I added  "_localnames" tag.

	Giving "_full_rights" to DOMAIN in MAIL FROM leads just to this
	behaviour, just like I had written in some comments about the
	policy stuff at:

	Alter the boiler-plate by copying current  _full_rights
	to name  _localnames, and remove "relaycustomer +" from
	the new copy.

	Then modify  policy-builder.sh  program to use "_localnames"
	when constructing entries from the ``localnames'' file.

	Alternatively pick  zmailer-2.99.50-snap4, where these are
	already in place in the smtp-policy.src and policy-builder.sh
