Have you noticed high memory VSZ or RSS consumption? Might be the OS is
killing the process.

Have you checked the per process file descriptor limits?

Have you enabled core files for daemons? A core from a milter crash
should appear in the work-dir, typically /var/tmp. This would be useful
in order to get a stack trace.

I've no experience with FreeBSD 8; it might be a bug in their libc or
libpthread libraries if this has only now started to occur. I'll send
you the latest libsnert to try.

Also make sure you are using the most current libmilter from Sendmail
8.14.4 just in case there have been libmilter related bug fixes.
