Using bmf from some of my servers, I noticed that
I could wreak havoc in the collected statistics by
running bmf -s on one of my machines. After that
mails are constantly misclassified.
Further investigation showed that the values stored
in the db files are byte order dependent. What looks
on the i386 machine (excerpt from bmfconv -e)
looks on the PPC
Of course updating that value will completely break
the stats for both plattforms.
I'd suggest to store the values in a defined format,
possibly network byte order, using the appropriate
conversion routines (htonl et al).
