Turned out to be a filesystem-level lock. There were still sendmail
processes running for each job (holding the lock), even though I told
/etc/init.d/sendmail to stop or restart. Now I have a bunch of sendmail
processes in a D state. Some kind of deadlock caused by my messing with
things. Probably I'll have to reboot to clear these locks. Anyway.
For future reference.
