[Gross] Space Character in Mail From Crashing Gross

I started to experiment with Gross few days ago with SJSMS. I observed
that Gross crashed regularly, without any error message, and thus left
the server out of greylisting protection.

I use Gross 1.0rc2 and found it crashses when a spammer sends
something like this:

MAIL FROM: <spam"mer at dom> SIZE=1000

The mail.log shows the MS takes spam"mer at dom> SIZE=1000 as the envelop
address, without taking care of the unbalanced double quote. Although
I think it's either a MS bug or at least a configuration issue, Gross
shouldn't be crashing because of invalid inputs.

Anyone encounters this issue? Or just me? And BTW, a little bit off
topic, what's your experience dealing with invalid characters using
the MS configuration files like mappings?
