Incomplete sendmail logs after upgrade to MS 4.32.5

Just upgraded two systems running different MS-versions to MS 4.32.5.
When checking the logfiles I noticed something strange.

I see the from= logline from sendmail. Then MS shows it's loglines when
processing the message. After that I get a to= logline from the next
sendmail with a stat=sent. I don't see the to= logline with the
stat=queued from the daemonized sendmail.

I checked whether there was some other sendmail running but it wasn't.
Killing MS stopped processing mail from as expected. Messages
appeared in but still no loglines with to= and stat=queued.

Anybody else seen this behaviour. I have seen this on two different
machines sendmail 8.12.10 and 8.12.8 on RedHat Enterprise resp. Redhat

MS was installed using the standard rpm.
