[Mimedefang] mimedefang blocked since this morning

Recovered by itself, without any modifications. It looks like there was a network problem, something like interrogating the public lists (either spamassassin or clamav) and waiting forever for the response. I'm waiting for the confirmation from our network engineer, but I see no other explanation.

However, this case showed us that we don't know how to find the blocking point, if it's a spamassassin problem, or clamav. If you know how, can you please answer this point ? 

Thank you very much.
Best regards,

> Hello everyone,
> Mimedefang stopped working correctly this morning at 8AM, with no changes made. All the new mails are rejected because there are no free slaves. Looking closer, it seems to accept the first mails, but it never finish the analyze and therefore, it never release them back to our postfix server. I tried to debug spamassassin, it seems like running correctly, as well as clamav. As far as I know, MimeDefang will check its own filters, then it gives the mail to spamassassin and clamav and at the end it returns the mail with the result of these operations. I tried to find how to configure mimedefand in debug mode, but I didn't find anything.Can you please help me debugging and find where it blocks ?
