There should be a line above this one with a better error message.

You positive you don't have two INPUT_MAIL_FILTER lines in your .mc
files?  m4 is sort of weird and I've found that even commented macros
sometimes get expanded.

As for the NULL context error, from my reading of the milter docs, it
really shouldn't ever happen.  If the context value was NULL, the
milter would have segfaulted long before getting to mlfi_close :)  I
suppose it could be a bounds overflow just before mlfi_close is called.

The NULL context thing shouldn't stop the milter from working.
Something is definitely wrong, but since the connection is closing
anyway, I don't make it a fatal error.  Are messages getting tagged?
