Check to ensure that sendmail is not being started from runlevel 2. Do a
chkconfig --levels 2345 sendmail off
and reboot. On some systems, despite our (previous) best attempts, sendmail
survives from runlevel 2. This would result in the symptoms you are seeing.
In the next version (due around Christmas) I am more careful about killing
off sendmail :-)
