Something caused the milter to crash  All the known crashing bugs fixed
since 0.2.0 was released are in that debian package, though.  Because
of Linux's pthreads implementation, if one thread seg faults, it can
cause the other threads to hang instead of exiting cleanly.  On other
OSes you would start getting immediate "connection refused" errors
instead of the 5min timeout.  If you can get a coredump and a stack
trace of the faulting thread, that would help.
