The libmilter part of sendmail is not very well documented (even by
sendmail standards :).  You'll have to dig into the source to find out
exactly what those errors mean.  Broken pipe sounds bad, though; it
implies the milter closed its connection before sendmail wanted it to,
which could mean it's seg-faulting.
