I think all my milters use Berkeley DB, so milter-date may be failing if 
it wasn't built with BDB correctly, though there is usually a log 
message to this effect when it starts.

Nope. milters and mailscanner and two very different techinques with no 
overlap. Actually, it's more likely that a milter will affect 
MailScanner (ie. reduce its load) than the otehr way round.

When in doubt:

a) verbose=all or verbose=info,trace,db,cache,dialog tend to be interesting.

b) make sure that your /etc/syslogd.conf has mail.debug or mail.* set. 
Typical settings use mail.info level, which means many of the verbose 
settings in the milter never reach the logs. If you change this file, 
remember to HUP the syslogd process after.
