I bet this is either a hardware problem, or your OS is going around killing
processes because of overcommitted memory.  I've never seen Perl die
with a segmentation fault under normal conditions.

Are you running Linux?  If so, you might have bumped into the nasty OOM
process killer.  It kills processes more-or-less randomly, and if it kills
mimedefang or mimedefang-multiplexor, you're dead in the water.
