Hi Shawn,

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Please see the sanitised email attached. (I assume attaching works with the mailing list?)
It’s not happening with every message indeed; but it’s a reasonable amount of the emails it processes. I just ran the original message (cat message|sendmail -t) and it was delivered without a problem.

This message is by design, as long as you are not caught in a loop and it is not happening with every message.  There's something in the HTML that killed the child spawned to perform the disarming.  Depending on the scenario, a sample of the email (sanitized) might be helpful to isolate what is going on here and improve the HTML Disarming code.
