router demon dies upon restart.

Dear experts out there,

One of our mail servers keeps logging messages like:
squirrel: 8324 saved for inspection: message header syntax error!
*** message header syntax error!
*** external message claims local origin!
<98Aug5.173947hkt.8319(2)@alumni.alumni.ee.ust.hk>: file: 8319(2)
<(expected wo-d) > => <97Etck@alumni.ee.ust.hk>

Every time the script "startrouter" is executed by cron and then dies.
What I mean "die" is that I cannot find the demon by running
"ps -ax|grep router"

The output of mailq -ss is like:
297 entries in router queue: no demons
0 entries in scheduler queue: scheduling transports (core exists)
21 messages in transport queue

The the no. of entries in the router goes up to 500!

Any idea is very much appreciated.
