I asked whether you were using the policy daemon from libmail-spf-query-
perl because I wanted to know if that could have been the source of the
change in behavior. However examples/postfix-policyd-spf hasn't been
changed significantly since 1.997 and not at all since 1.998, so I doubt
it is the culprit.
Could you, for testing purposes, try downgrading libmail-spf-query-perl to
the last version you were using before the problem occurred and see if the
problem goes away? That should be the definite indicator for whether the
problem is rooted anywhere in libmail-spf-query-perl.

Unfortunately, I don't have a clue either. I know little about Postfix and
the Postfix SPF policy daemon.
