You might consider waiting till you believe all the mailscanner children
have stopped processing messages, then attach to one of the children
(not the parents) with strace -p to see what's doing.  The output's not
likely to lead you to any particular spot in the code, but at least you
should see each child periodically wake up and read the incoming queue
directory for files.
