No official patch from the exim people yet.  And unfortunately 3.12 is old as
the hills (there are a lot of features that I use - and require - in the 3.2x

So best way is to run without header check syntax compiled in till Philip
Hazel gets back (he should be back today and I think an official patch will
be out within a while).

Right now, this bug is not critical - and doesnt affect you if you haven't
compiled your exim with header check syntax enabled.

I'd suggest "wait and watch" for a while.  If you are using debian, then
fine, of course.
