I occasionally see the same thing on my systems.  I /believe/ that this 
happens when another milter causes Sendmail to reject the message, thus 
the current milter no longer needs to (or even has? any thing) to 
process the message.

I have found that not all "to error state" messages are actually 
critical errors.

This is one of the reasons I'm reading about milter-manager to see if I 
can't conditionally call subsequent milters only if previous milters 
don't cause a message to be rejected.
