If you check the processing database, do the problem IDs "linger"
there? If you do a debug run (stop MailScanner, supply the message,
run "MailScanner --debug" as the postfix user... ISTR the wiki
containing more detailed instructions;), and check that MailScanner
isn't dying on you... Might be the usual taint problem (cured by the
-U fix)...
