Is the bug repeatable by unfreezing the message and forcing a delivery
attempt? If so, you might be able to get a core dump from the delivering

If the 450 is casued by greylisting on the remote side, that debugging
attempt must be close to the first time of sending the message so that
the 450 is still there.
