For those that are waiting on the hotfix, it should have popped out from IBM today. My customer with the AIX 64 server got the ftp site email today. In their case I believe they are just going to leave the 8.5.1 SMTP server in the way for the time being and install the fix when it is rolled into Domino 8.5.2 FP1.
For those that didn't see Dan Adams' from IBM comment on my original work around post, the fix should be posted to Fix Central on September 8th. My guess is a PMR will get you it before then. Any way here is Dan's comment:
This issue is not platform specific and has been reproduced in house with a message that has caused the issue. If you are running into this issue please contact Support regarding this issue.
IBM has a test fix available that is undergoing testing.
Based on successful test results, the target for a public Fix Central fix posting is September 8, 2010.
This fix will also be incorporated into 8.5.2 Fix Pack 1 in Q4.

Stop users accidentally connecting to passive Domino cluster servers
Mon, Apr 15th 2013 6:40a Darren Duke In clusters I prefer to split my users between them, but if you don't do that (or can't, because as you have a Domino cluster server at a remote DR site for fail over only) then you can do the following to stop users accidentally connecting to the dormant/passive cluster member: Add SERVER_AVAILABILITY_THRESHOLD=100 to the dormant/passive server notes.ini file. Once you add that you should eventually see the server availability switch to this: Some things to understand here.. [read] Keywords: domino
