MailScanner Shutdown/Restart Problem

I am running MailScanner on a Cobalt Raq3 (Linux OS).  Using the command
"/etc/rc.d/init.d/mailscanner restart" or "stop" fails to stop or restart
MailScanner.  A simple "Error"is reported and although sendmail stops and
restarts properly, there is no effect on MailScanner.  For some reason, the
mailscanner process cannot be identified from the script.  I have to
manually kill the MailScanner pid and then start MailScanner again.  Any
idea what the problem might be?
