Sendmail timed out (that's in the Milter (mimedefang): timeout before
data read log line) so it tempfailed the mail and exited.

MIMEDefang, of course, had no idea that happened.  So when filter
processing is finally done and mimedefang tries to call
smfi_addheader, the original Sendmail process is long gone and the
milter pipe is broken, hence the libmilter call fails.
