That's odd. The qmail support was contributed and has worked fine for
other folks for some time now. Patches are of course welcome, but I don't
have the means to test them.
For the benefit of the folks on the mj2-dev list, where I'm CC'ing this,
I'll quote the rest of the message.

I have to say that this is the first time I've heard of problems like these
with qmail. I do know that other qmail users have been able to use the
software without problems, so I suspect that there's something beyond my
understanding at work here.
