	So you both have same operating system.
	Do you both use   --with-ta-mmap   ??
	I don't remember of Slawek Zak, do you also have Cyrus ? Or not ?

	 via 'mailbox'..)

	Getting text from  /etc/services mixed into the stored messages
	is most strange thing indeed, and roughly the only thing I can
	think of to do it is some mistake in transport agent mmap()

	Otoh the suspects of similar mixups I had many years ago were,
	I think, before intro of TA mmap() facility, and on SunOS 4.1.*
	(which was BSD 4.3/4.4 derivative, just like FreeBSD..)
