When I've seen this behaviour it's usually when an instance of the MTA (in my case sendmail) and MailScanner are both running.  Sometimes when I do an update, the sendmail daemon will be set to start in /etc/init.d by the patch.  If I don't remember to disable it again, sendmail will start and process mail w/o sending it to MailScanner.  Stop all your mail processes, check the runlevels and turn any off that shouldn't be on, then restart MailScanner.
