spamassassin syswrite error

    In the last couple of months since updating to Plesk 8.0.1 we've had problems with our mail server...

    at times mail will just stop getting delivered to mailboxes, and after quite a bit of digging around we found out the problem was related to SpamAssassin..

    if we do:
    /etc/init.d/spamassassin stop
    /etc/init.d/psa-spamassassin stop
    /etc/init.d/spamassassin start
    /etc/init.d/psa-spamassassin start

    mail will start getting processed again..

    chased through the logs and found that when spamassassin dies, the following appears in the mail logs..

    spamd[22359]: prefork: syswrite(8) failed, retrying... at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/Mail/SpamA
    ssassin/SpamdForkScaling.pm line 554

    searched google, appears to be an existing problem in the version of spamassassin bundled with plesk, and recommendation is to upgrade..

    of course attempting to do this via cpan doesn't work..

    anyone have suggestions?

    no one has any advice on how to fix this?

    i've just had to restart spamassassin and psa-spamassassin as spamassassin had died out again with this error and now mail is backlogged on our server..
