exim4 router problems since 2 days / sucpicous process "zinit" is pstree


I have installed Debian 5.0.7. Since 2 days my exim4 does not deliver mails. I always get the message, that the mail is not routeable. I only used "dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config" without touching one config file by hand. I detected a log message (panic log) which says, that there was a "too large message". Since that point exim4 stopped working.

The other point is that pstree reports a process "zinit" I never saw in the past:
(see last line of output)

# pstree -A
     |             `-mysqld---41*[{mysqld}]

I found it here:
# ls -lah /sbin/zinit
-rwxr-x--x 1 root root 1.9M 2008-08-12 16:09 /sbin/zinit

But I do not have any idea what it is. And I can not see the process with "ps":

# ps aux | grep zinit
root      5125  0.0  0.0   3120   708 pts/0    R+   12:00   0:00 grep zinit

Do I have a security issue here? Any other idea?

Thank you in advance,
