Connecting mailscanner to sendmail

I am running MailScanner 4.05-3 with sendmail 8.12.6 on a Debian system
and am having trouble getting sendmail to leave the message in the queue
for MailScanner to see and process.

If I stop sendmail and drop some q/df files into the queue MailScanenr
immediately grabs them and processes them and sends them on
appropriately.  If sendmail is running and receives a message it
immediately processes it and sends it along with giving MailScanner a
chance to look at it.

Everything else works great, but how do I get sendmail to put it in the
queue and leave it there long enough for MailScanner to see it?

I have tried commenting out the ControlSocketName=... in the
file, but still no luck.  Any suggestions?
