I got the same results you did and wasn't able to trace the problem. The 
slots added to the process clone don't seem to get added to the correct 
lists when you set their module.

Wouldn't "process this abort: 'should violation'" get the job done 
instead of "raise" given that you are running the code in a separate 
process and doing the checking you mentioned?

I just changed the upload policy to "moderated" a little while back. I 
had expected that this would send a request for approval to me, not 
keep you from posting files entirely. This was done because some 
spammers figured out that they could get around moderation in Yahoo 
groups with open file areas by uploading their spam there, causing a 
notice to be sent to all members about the new file.

Perhaps I should change it back? This list is not moderated anyway so 
spammers have other options, like the two messages we recently received 
here. Those looked like a virus as well as spam, so I deleted them from 
the archives so nobody would get infected while browsing them.
