This can have security implications in the setups where tmail is installed setuid root (according to the resources I found, that's required in certain configurations; dmail is not expected to run under different user), or when one of the utilities is configured as deliver agent in the MTA. Some further info I managed to collect is in our BZ: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=469667 -- Tomas Hoger / Red Hat Security Response Team
