Spamd - spamd: /sbin/pfctl returned status 1 (every minute)

I switched to pfsense 1.2.3 (from 1.2.2) and I saw some problems with spamd like:
spamd: /sbin/pfctl returned status 1
pfctl: socket: Operation not permitted
On the developer-side of spamd (freeberlios) I found the following ticket:
[Bug #10705] _spamd must be a superuser to modify ipfw table
_spamd must be a superuser to modify ipfw table
Current implementation of the IPFW patchset require _spamd to be a superuser (uid 0)
to modify ipfw table. This is because spamd child use RAW_SOCKETS socket to modify ipfw table,
and RAW_SOCKETS avaible only for the superuser. May be its good idea to open this socket
BEFORE fork() and use it in the child.
So I have changed user _spamd to root privileges 'pw user mod _spamd -u 0'!
After a spamd-restart the problem was solved.
So my question is, should the ++INSTALL-procedure changed to:
SPAMDUID= 0 instead 0f 132 ?
