Urgent help needed: mailscanner not processing mail

Check your mail.log for that message ID, I've come across a similar
problem where MailScanner's TNEF dies upon opening certain
attachements, and MailScanner gets stuck in a loop dying on that one
message.  removing that message from the mqueue.in or equivalent
alleviates the problem here.   I'm running MailScanner  4.14-9 on Mac
OS X 10.2.6 (apple darwin) with Sendmail and the Perl TNEF decoder.
