Single process taking over?

I've just upgraded to 4.26.8 and have noticed that on one of our linux boxes
running Sendmail MailScanner seems to have spawned all the processes, but
one process always uses 99-100% CPU and the box is killing itself to keep up
regardless of weather mail is waiting to be processed or not.

If I kill that individual MailScanner process the box begins to run

Has anyone else seen this?  It's a pretty big issue as this box is one of
our core message routing boxes.
