This would generally mean the fax is still being received, and is
"locked" by the faxgetty receiving it.

Yes, as soon as the fax is "Started", it will be visabile in the recvq
listing.  It won't be "RETR"able until it's finished.

The "%z" option in RecvFmt for the recvq listing will show you if it' sa
receive in progress (won't RETR) or now.  See the faxstat man page.
