Yes, anything going to STDOUT will mess things up royally... but probably
by causing a complaint from the multiplexor and not the milter.

The error message: cmd read returned 0, expecting 5

means that the Sendmail end of the milter state machine expected to read
5 characters from mimedefang, but got EOF instead.

I would try fixing the SpamAssassin problem to see if that fixes everything.
There's no point in trying to debug two problems at once.
