Several people (thanks, guys!) explained the situation to me. I thought
that it was Sendmail itself that was experiencing the high load, which
shouldn't ever happen. The real story is that it was the system that was
experiencing the high load.
The cause of the system high load is no mystery. I was doing a "make -j3"
kernel build around that time, so there was high CPU and disk
utilization. I wasn't aware when I posted my question that Sendmail
monitors system load.
