EV - Failed External Filter

I have an issue whereby around 3 times daily a number of messages are placed in the failed external filter folder over a period of approx 3 mins.  There does not appear to be any common thread with the messages, and they are not messages which should be discarded.

I have only one rule in the filter which is to HARD DELETE messages from specific senders (approx 15 senders in the list).

I get a number of errors in the logs, and a sample of these is attached.

If I drop the messages back into the inbox, then they process correctly.

All messages are from the journal.

I have seen a number of threads regarding this but none seem to apply.

Any pointers appreciated.

suggest doing a dtrace or a backtrace against journaltask specifically when that error triggers

The third event is 'normal'...  the others are the odd ones.  As mentioned above you would need to either DTRACE, or BACKTRACE to find the cause.
