ISS patch problem?

I just upgraded a system today to the 2.0.29 + ISS-test3 patch, and am
having new problems with sendmail. It just stopped accepting connections
on port 25 and printing errors like these.

Mar 6 11:31:08 yoda sendmail[85]: NOQUEUE: SYSERR(root):
opendaemonsocket: cannot bind: Address already in use
Mar 6 11:31:08 yoda sendmail[85]: problem creating SMTP socket

Note...this isn't something dumb like trying to start more than one copy
of sendmail listening on port 25. This is the original sendmail pid that
got started up at bootup...and now it's saying it doesn't want to work

After this started, I killed sendmail and tried several times to restart
it. Most times it started up but refused to listen on port 25. Now I
think it is.
