clientmqueue? So your MTA is limiting your MSP process. If you really 
want to limit clients submitting mail then you should probably apply the 
milter to the submit.mc file instead.

milter-limit return 450 4.7.1. temporary rejection until the limited 
time period resets. So its only normal that MSP would queue the 
temporary rejected messages until the MTA allows them through. I'd say 
you are apply milter-limit in the wrong place.

What you really want to do for this particular case would be to reject 
with a 550 5.7.1 instead. It might also be useful to implement this as a 
choice for the previously suggested -p option, different from -p reject.
