Hate to follow up my own post,  but I left some information out.

Currently,   calling spamassassin with the -L switch allows spamassassin
to work,  without doing any of the DNS lookups,  and thereby not letting
razor et al affect it's performance.  This of course decreases
spamassassins ability to accurately tag spam, but for now seems a very
viable option.  At least the mail server will continue running.  And at
least some spam will still be tagged.
