That is what I think also. Either spamd or the whole system is
momentarily overloaded, although I see no other indication of that. I
would expect an error different than a "time out" if spamd were not
running. I'd expect something like "unable to connect". When I check it
I haven't gotten this error since 10/3, shortly after I cleared all of
the logs and did some minor reconfiguration. Like you I'm concerned it
may indicate some other underlying problem.
So far no identifiable problem with mail delivery. I may look into
improving the mail system performance.
