Ok, that one may help a little...

Since I noted that I don't run this toy, you're going to have to fill me
in on some real information before I can provide any help.

How does smtp-refuser work - show me the control/data flow from
`telnet localhost 25` -> sendmail...

I'm guessing (because at this point thats all I can do):

If smtp-refuser uses TCPD, it may interfere with sendmails use TCPD -
Both may be invoking your twist clause, and the first may not've
completed before the second starts - which might be the dup problem.
