Problem with Exim

Since upgrading to the latest exim (4.44?) I will occasionally notice I
am not receiving mail. I will check the server (ps -ax | grep 'exim')
and find that there are dozens of exim processes running (exim -bd
-q30m). I will do 'exim.sh stop' but that only kills the initial
process and not the others. If I manually kill all the stray processes,
as soon as I start receiving mail new ones will appear. If I reboot,
then everything works fine for about 24 hours then it starts to happen
again. Has anybody else had this happen or does anybody know what might
be causing the problem? I do run Exim with Clamav and I keep all my
ports updated almost daily.
Your time and assistance is greatly appreciated.
