[Mimedefang] Busy Timeout Slaves

This might be a long shot, but we had an experience where other
software on the box, doing periodic updates, was pushing the load
so high and slowing it down so much that Mimedefang would time out.
It appeared to be a Mimedefang problem, but it was not.  When we
finally asked, what else was happening during those minutes, then
we found what it was.  Most of the time we had plenty of cpu and
swap-- but not at those moments.
