Given that the program is receiving the data queue entries because you see them 
in the 
log file then I'd put money on it being a logic flaw in your program.  Maybe 
some flag 
is being set and not reset properly.  Maybe a counter is overflowing.  Who 
knows from 
this distance.  Service the job and debug it while the problem is occurring.  
Is there 
any pattern at all to the failure (e.g., time of day, hours active, records 
record type, etc., etc.)?
