No - MailScanner is probably fine, those are the correct settings.  It looks like some sendmail weirdness, check what queue the incoming sendmail points to in /etc/init.d/MailScanner  (also make sure the sendmail process doesn't have a -Ac flag on the command line).  Check the message headers to see if they are getting into clientmqueue from the incoming sendmail.  Check the mail logs to see if theres any clues there.
