Is that by any chance one that's handling an unusually large number of
binaries?  I was seeing this too with my innfeed process that was handling
large articles until I set max-queue-size for that innfeed to 5.  You
don't want to stream binary articles too much; it takes too long to send
them and you end up with excessively large queues.
