Miraculous problem, possibly BAD!
I suddently noticed a thing that I did not pay attention before, and hardly

I noticed that mail sometimes (rarely) disappears. I started looking
into $POSTOFFICE and found it. It was lying in queue/?/nnnn-nnnn files;
there where *no* corresponding transport/?/* files, mailq did not see it.
Move those files into router/ and mail gets delivered. There where a few
messages half a year old! And a few quite fresh.
I would think that these are files left of hard reboots etc. but there
where two cases when I *saw* messages going this way. They where
submit locally by `sendmail' frontend and went directly to queue/...,
no traces in the log.
I am puzzled. Any thoughts?
