If it is the same postfix queue file that is stuck in the hold
directory, one might suspect that the queue file is somehow broken (in
a way undetectable to postfix)... Or perhaps it is MailScanner having
problems reading/understanding it. One solution here would be to
simply clear the queue file out (with rm).
BTW, what versions are you running (PF, MS, OL ...)?
