Yes, it used to be such that the scheduler counted the tries when
a message was submitted into the try, now diagnostic replies are
driving the "tries" counter -- TA programs tell when something
really is tried.
OTOH.. Having the counter growing fast is also a sort of sign that
something is very much amiss, e.g. when the scheduler clocks the
"tries" counter when the message is sent into processing.

The very current cvs version *may* have problems, although I don't see
any at my workstation, the partial rewrite of mimeheaders.c header
handling may have SIGSEGV material inside.
Do you see any dropped cores ? Could you make sure you have compiled
your binaries with '-g' option, so that gdb backtrace would give sensible
callback list, including files/linenumbers of functions.
