4.39.5-1 - is sendmail locking broken again?

With 4.39.5-1 I notice that jobs are being repeatedly re-scanned by MS
again. This last happened with 4.35.11-1 back in December. It was fixed
by updating to the latest RedHat AS/ES 3 kernel.

I have not updated the kernel since I installed 4.38.9-1 which worked

I have RH AS 3 + Sendmail 8.12.11 + 4.39.5-1.

Locking has been defaulting to "flock". Changing it to "posix" does not
stop the re-scanning of the same messages.
