no, but I did search the mailing list archive for this message and changed
this based on a earlier email you had replied too.

They mean that sendmail got tired of waiting for dccm to answer.

I think the default timeouts from misc/dcc.m4 in the DCC source are
5 and 30 seconds.  Perhaps the initial timeout should be increased
to 30 seconds.  That can be done by changing a line like
    Xdcc, S=unix:/var/run/dcc/dccm, F=T, T=C:5s;S:5s;R:5s;E:30s
    Xdcc, S=unix:/var/run/dcc/dccm, F=T, T=C:30s;S:5s;R:5s;E:30s
in sendmail.cf
