Replying to my own post, I deleted /var/lock/subsys/sendmail and then restarted
sendmail again and it worked for several seconds and then stopped again with
the same status message "sendmail dead but subsys locked".

I have rebooted the computer and get the same problem.  There is nothing
in /var/log/maillog or /var/log/messages that's timestamped anywhere near when
sendmail stops.

This is all that I get in /var/log/maillog when I restart sendmail:

Sep 25 12:17:44 jeff sendmail[3000]: /etc/aliases: 76 aliases, longest 10
bytes, 765 bytes total Sep 25 12:17:44 jeff sendmail[3005]: starting daemon

starting daemon (8.13.7): queueing 01:00:00

I get nothing in /var/log/messages at all.
