 In fact I now get it reliabily for many clients. Reverting
 pkgsrc/mail/sendmail/patches/* to its content prior this upgrades
 and running make makepatchsum fixes the problem.
 The bug is therefore not in sendmail-8.14.9 but in the pkgsrc patches
 we apply to it. The change is about using re-entrant resolver and
 IPv6 resolution, and it is quite intrusive. Was that submitted upstream
 to sendmail maintainers?
