What's more odd is, after those two mails failed to route, I
discovered today that I have 21 more in the router queue.

root@monet:/software/zmailer/spool/router[625]# ls -al
total 1324
drwxrwxrwt   2 root     bin          2048 May 14 14:31 .

After a while, I discovered the problem. It has to do with the
length of the number. After I renamed the file names to two digits,
all the messages are routed. Somehow, numbers that are "too large"
are silently not routed.
