I have no intention of starting a qmail/postfix/whatever flame war. I 
was not aware that qmail seems to be a delicate subject for some people. 
I simply had a problem with not detecting backscatter.

For the time being, I solved the problem by removing 
"lxrouter.wombaz.localnet" from whitelist_bounce_relays. 
<something> is already always present in my Received: lines, 
since I send all of my mail through their smarthost.
