spamd is configured to have only 5 children at a time and you get too much 
mail for this

the milter skips spamd because because it didn't respond in a timely 
fashion because of above

I think this indicates the milter is now completely dead, sendmail is 
bypassing the milter (if correctly configured).

I think you are doing it the wrong way. You either need to use:

- milter + spamd
- MailScanner + SA
