Package: exim4-daemon-heavy
Version: 4.88-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

When upgrading system to stretch, I've noticed occasional segfaults of


#0  __memcmp_sse2 () at ../sysdeps/x86_64/multiarch/../memcmp.S:57
#1  0x000055ff73dfcccb in pdkim_finish_bodyhash (ctx=0x55ff74306ce0, ctx=0x55ff74306ce0) at pdkim.c:814
#2  pdkim_feed_finish (ctx=0x55ff74306ce0, return_signatures=return_signatures at entry=0x55ff7404c108 <dkim_signatures>) at pdkim.c:1392

#7  0x000055ff73d51363 in main (argc=3, cargv=0x7ffd6868ad98) at exim.c:4808

The DKIM signature in the received mail seems to be (if I didn't mess 
up something with gdb):

"DKIM-Signature: a=rsa-sha1; c=relaxed/relaxed; d=am-nis.com;\n\ts=s512; l=18869; x=1489743197; h=From:To:Subject:Content-Type:\n\tDate:Message-ID; b=EUtdmveJf3sgSeaGgvvseKpfKtxEXTUfVsh8vTriUI/9y\n\tIpwbJXpFa+nSkKMPrQvD80B76wI7YLx+MYSoPusuw==\n"

I'll try with 4.89 from unstable to see if that helps (though obviously I'm not
able to reproduce this reliably).
