The maintenance interval *exploded* with the latest Sober worm.  
Originally this was taking about 20 minutes. :(

We're still seeing ~13,000 copies of Sober.Z making it past the greylist 
- you can only imagine what is getting blocked.

But yes, help does seem to be in order and unfortunately our in-house 
DBAs are Oraclists and don't seem interested in tainting their purity by 
touching MySQL.  Perhaps I should just move the greylist DB to Oracle.....
