Standart LWQ-qmail - Segmentation Fault with smtpd

I installed netqmail 1.06
( on Debian Lenny. Everythink
worked like a charm except for that smtpd exists with a "Segmentation
Fault" error (thats the whole message) when running it manually at

Running the LWQ-Test script for a broken installation doesn't help: "Congratulations, your LWQ installation looks good!"

qmailctl stat shows the following:

/service/qmail-send: up (pid 30041) 3723 seconds
/service/qmail-send/log: up (pid 30046) 3723 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd: up (pid 6022) 1 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd/log: up (pid 30051) 3723 seconds
messages in queue: 0
messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0

with /service/qmail-smtpd being always < 2 seconds.

I did not have a previous MTA agend

Looking in the logs in /var/log didn't show anything. Any help would be very appreciated.

kind regards,

What did you find in the output of readproctitle? This can be located in
your ps listing:

ps auxwww | grep readproctitle

This should give you a hint as to what is wrong. If I had to guess I
would say that you didn't tune softlimit enough for your particular OS
