spamass-milter dies under heavy load

I am running two HP-UX 11.0 servers with ISC BIND 8.12.3.  They connect to
a dual processor linux 2.4.4 machine running spamassassin, spamass-milter
0.1.2 (compiled with ISC sendmail 8.12.3 milter libs).

spamass-milter is locking up (not accepting connections on the tcp
socket).  I can not get it to dump core by sending it a kill -11!  Has
anyone else experienced this problem?  Under light load it runs like a
champ, but when put in our production environment it just chokes.  Our
two mail servers process about about 8000 messages / day, each.  Sometimes
it will run for not more than 15 minutes before needing to be shutdown and

My first idea is to upgrade to 8.12.6 everywhere and see if that helps.  I
am particularly concerned though that the spamass-milter can not be forced
to dump core.  We are kind of limited in our ability to debug the program.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
