It would be good to move the flag_expand work into void SpamAssassin::Connect() so that shell out to sendmail
is only made when necessary. But this patch works
just fine.

So some email address of a mailinglist server are processed by `prog' mailer. For example, `majordomo@example.com' is processed by `|/path/to/majordomo/wapper majordomo', that is defined in /etc/aliases. In this case, spamass-milter passes `|/path/to/majordomo/wapper majordomo' as the username to spamd via spamc. Spamd falls back to User nobody because spamd can't handle this as a local user's name. Bayesian filter and AWL do not work correctly because User nobody has no valid home directory.

This makes spamass-milter ignore the username when the mailer is `prog.' In case that spamass-milter does so, spamass-milter passes the user indecated by `-u' option to spamd, spamd is setuided to the user, and Bayesian filter and AWL work well.
