1.3.x and sendmail...

Evening, everyone...

I've been experiencing some problems with basically every 1.3.x kernel
release I've worked with so far and sendmail. The problem begins to
really show itself after several days of uptime; basically, I end up with
dozens of sendmail processes lying around, waiting on data from the other
size. The same problem manifests itself with a system we use for
operating several muds; netstat shows connections in a LAST_ACK, FIN_WAIT,
or CLOSE state for hours (or days) before they finally close.

Suggestions? This kind of thing would probably be good to clean up by 2.0
(if it is in fact a kernel problem?).
