I'm using exim / cyrus as out mail setup.

There are strange messages in the  exim mail log:
  R=localuser T=local_delivery defer (-1): Malformed LMTP response after 
end of data: :\365\034Z\026a\252\324

here are the relevant parts of the configuration:

* cyrus.conf
    imap          cmd="imapd" listen="" prefork=0
    imaps         cmd="imapd -s" listen="imaps" prefork=0
    pop3s         cmd="pop3d -s" listen="pop3s" prefork=0
    sieve         cmd="timsieved" listen="sieve" prefork=0
    lmtpunix      cmd="lmtpd" listen="/var/state/lmtp/socket" prefork=0

* exim.conf
    driver = accept
    transport = local_delivery
    cannot_route_message = Unknown user

* local_delivery:
    driver = lmtp
    socket = /var/state/lmtp/socket
    transport_filter = /usr/bin/tr -d \\000
    batch_max = 20

* Versions:
    Cyrus IMAPD v2.1.16
    Cyrus SASL  2.1.17
    Berkeley DB 3.3.11
    CMU Sieve 2.2
    Exim  4.40

Does anybody have any hint?
