Unfortunately, smfi_opensocket is a _FFR in Sendmail 8.12,
so the configure script would have to detect whether or
not it's available.

libmilter shouldn't be closing and reopening the socket,
should it?  It only gets closed at the end when milter is
shutting down.

I've never seen the behavior you describe.  Can you strace
the milter to see what's happening?
