That is strange.. which means this is an old problem which is just
now surfacing in the system.
The diagnostics reports are carrying (more recently) local spoolid of
the message file so that in this kind of things could be checked from
the syslog data. Could this be a case where the control file is left
into the system after successfull delivery ?
(Name has been originally "X-Spool-ID:", latter "Local-Spool-ID:")
Why the delivery would not be marked to the control file, thus blocking
it away, I don't know..

The ID associated syslogged data might give us some clue to this.
