Processing of that message did throw an otherwise uncaught exception.
The two entries in the error log immediately preceding the 'shunting'
message with the same or almost the same timestamp give more detail.

The first of these says "Uncaught runner exception:" and gives the
exception. This is followed by a traceback of the error, and these two
messages are followed by the "SHUNTING:" message.

If you post the full traceback entry, we can help you understand what
the problem was with the message.

If you ran bin/unshunt and the message processed without error the
second time, then it must have been a transient situation of some kind
that caused the first exception. Please post the traceback so we can
see what happened.
