i just installed a fresh CVS copy from sourceforge...
as i was looking inside Defaults.py to change the lock lifetime
for my system, i noticed the following comment:
# LIST_LOCK_TIMEOUT specifies how long an attempt will be made to acquire a
# list lock.  If the lock acquisition times out, the operation will fail.
# should be.  If you're using an MTA, such as Postfix, that has its own
# command time out limit, make sure this lock timeout is set sufficiently
# below that value.  Postfix for example kills it's filter processes with
# SIGKILL, which can't be caught, and if triggered, can cause message loss.

does anybody know which postfix cf entry sets this time out limit for postfix and
what is the default value?
