And what does 64 map to in /usr/include/sysexits.h on your machine? I'd
wager it's EX_USAGE, command line usage error. See if there's any
information in the debug logs ($TMPDIR/*.debug).

Well, you always have to check the status of the pipe close, though
unfortunately we can't capture the error output from Sendmail (no
bidirectional pipes). We do the next best thing, which is redirecting the
errors to a file.
