I'm completely stumped; I've never seen this behaviour before.  I test
MIMEDefang on a Sun Blade 100 which is much less powerful than your box,
and it works fine.

Are you running Solaris 9?  Maybe it's a Solaris 8 problem?  Any other
Solaris users out there with helpful info?

This is too high.  I would use 1 or 0.

This is way too low.  I suggest 500.

Could you have a partially-installed version of MIMEDefang, like a set
of "C" programs from a different version than the Perl program?  Are you
linking against a recent libmilter.a?
