[Mimedefang] Sendmail crash

Yesterday, I think our NIS server hiccupped, causing sendmail to fail
when querying for valid users.  This caused MIMEDefang to dump a crap
load of mdefang* directories, but not process them.

I restarted sendmail, and it's working properly.... however, I have some
odd 140+ mdefang directories.  How can I go about processing these
"mid-stream" deleivered messages?

Also, on a side note, I've noticed some really heavy loads since
integrating MIMEDEFANG.  Any optimizing tweaks are appreciated.  I'm
running mail on a AMD 350MHz w/128 RAM on Redhat 6.2, 2.2.19.  Sendmail
8.11.6 with MIMEDefang 2.6, & Spamassassin 2.11.  My ONLY rule is to
query spamassassin & quarantine/discard if spamassass is true.
