That's annoying. About the only thing I can suggest is:
1) Run "md-mx-ctrl slaves" to get some slave process IDs
2) Attach gdb to one of them:
gdb /path/to/mimedefang-multiplexor pid_of_slave
3) In gdb, type "cont" to let the slave keep running
4) Hope that that's the one that dies. If it does, gdb will print a
message and you can type "where" to get a stack trace.
Are you using embedded Perl? Try turning that off to see if it
fixes the problem.

No; the slaves do a "cd /var/spool/MIMEDefang" as part of their
