Description of problem:
I'm trying to make evolution to use spamassassin, but when I download mails the
spamd process generates several child processes which are eating all my memory.
 To make it worse, after I have downloaded the mails those processes don't free
any memory untill I kill them manually.

Actual Results:  memory filled up completely and I had to kill manually the
spamd processes
