Default amavis problems

Hi, I have had a problem today where one of my servers had amavis take up 40% + of cpu, with email stuck in the postfix que, and cron jobs not running.

This is what is in the syslog - the same 2 exact line outputs over and over..

I stopped amavis and restarted and flushed the postfix que and everything seems to be working ok again. There was plenty of free RAM (350MB free) and disk space (200GB free) when this was happening.

Has anyone seen this before or know what has caused it as i cant find anything when i google it.

Server is running ubuntu 12.10 /postfix/dovecot/apache as per standard ISPconfig perfect server setup.
