Hi again,

I did further debugging.

The problem comes with USE_MDB

If compiling only with USE_DB, it works. If also using USE_MDB, it fails. I guess something is going wrong in the reputation.c file; in the #ifdef USE_MDB. There is cache and dups. I did not test, if I could simply add a snprintf inside, but after recompiling without this ldbm support, it seems to be the point of trouble.

Kind regards
