Must be server since the error says "500 server closed connection",  
and rt-mailgate successfully returns EX_TEMPFAIL to postfix.  I'll  
upgrade to 3.4.x in a day or so during my planned upgrade of apache  
to apache2 and perl + friends  on the server in question.  If it  
persists I'll report back.

mod_perl.  apache children handle 50 requests and then die, or if  
they've gotten too big they die.  i'm planning to move to fcgi to cut  
down my process load (right now I have a separate mod_perl instance  
just for RT).
