Well, I think it can be controlled in the following line or milter-ahead's 
equivalent:
`milter-gris', `S=unix:/var/lib/milter-gris/socket, T=C:1m;S:30s;R:6m;E:1m'

I am having the same trouble.  I tried changing R from 6m to 30m, and I
am still getting the timeout.  So, someone else is going to have to figure
out which parameter is the correct one to increase when the inbound message
arrives in a slow stream.

Hint: Sendmail is the process that is giving up because it has not heard
an answer.  So, it must be in the milter interace and not Anthony's code.
