Actually, the above seems a bit more complicated. The original message
is in the virgin queue so should never be unparseable. It may all be a
qrunner race issue. I.e. some VirginRunner other than PID 633
processed the message and when PID 633 tried to preserve it, the other
runner instance had already removed it, but that doesn't explain why
PID 633 found it unparseable in the first place. Does
1229758515.53407+f7dd7f3e72a65eb8764166694ac958f0d9335dcf.psv exist in
qfiles/shunt or qfiles/bad?
