One way would be to add a filter_init() subroutine to your filter
(anywhere you like but outside of any other subs) like this:

filter_init () {
  # Code to maintain a database connection per slave

Then right above this part of your filter (all the way at the bottom):

# DO NOT delete the next line, or Perl will complain.

Add this:


And if you need to clean up things when the slave goes away, read about
filter_cleanup() in the mimedefang-filter man page.
