Squatter shouldn't be causing "load spikes" unless there's some
resource contention for lock files, etc.
You should also make sure that if you're running cyr_expire, you're
NOT running it concurrently with squatter. Bad things happen.* To
get around this, I created a "nightly" shell script which runs
cyr_expire, then squatter, and kick that off as a scheduled task in my
* The bad things come into play if expire & squatter are processing
the same mailbox at the same time. Squatter will probably just
"stop", and not tell you why.
