Orphaned, undelivered files in mqueue.in

This was the first thing I have checked. I took different parts of the
numbers of these df files and grepped the maillog for it. Strangely enough
I cannot find them. Also when browsing through the maillog and looking
around the same date/time as these orphaned files in some cases there
isn't any message whatsoever of mail being delivered / received.
I have about 10 orphaned files in the mqueue.in, none in the outdir and
they are all from yesterday and this morning. I know for sure that I
didn't restart MailScanner last night or this morning. It's hardly
possible that MailScanner would restart itself at exactly the same time as
these 10 e-mails in 1,5 day? (This is a very low volume home server).
