The point is, this happens only with cutthrough delivery enabled. This
is the relevant acl:

  accept  domains       = +custom_callout
          control       = cutthrough_delivery
          endpass
          verify        = recipient/callout=use_sender


custom-callout is a short list with only 3 customers. None of them has
virus- or spam-scanning on the concerned server in use.

Without cutthrough_delivery the paniclog keeps clean. Enabling it
again, the error pops up again.

It always remains the -J-file, all others are getting removed.
