Guess: a message attachment contains uninitalized memory? The uninitialized memory must be coming from the UnixMessage, and therefore ultimately from the encoder that gets passed to sendOutgoingMessage. If it were a problem with encoder.buffer() then it would be a heap issue rather than a stack issue, so my guess is the message attachment.

Now the problem is going to be tracking it down to a particular message. Not sure how we can do that.
