It seems that my patch fixes the problem. After patching and
re-enabling LocalADSP in my .conf, I can send that problem message back
through my server with no problems. Switch back to the original 2.5.1
code and the problem returns.

Additionally it seems that my simple patch probably allows the correct
behavior to occur in OpenDKIM. The problem message ends up with the
following Authentication-Results header after passing through OpenDKIM
with my patch:

Authentication-Results:; dkim=permerror
        (can't determine sender address) header.i=unknown

I will leave it running with my patch and LocalADSP enabled for a while
to see if it truly is fixed.

It's always satisfying to squash another bug! :)

Thanks again!
