On my Linux system, signal 14 is SIGALRM.  Same on Solaris.  So I'm guessing
some (buggy?) piece of Perl code is calling alarm() without properly setting
a SIGALRM handler.  My first suspect would be SpamAssassin, but you'll have
to go through all your Perl modules to try to find out what's happening.
