   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.
