What is still running? Is Mailman still sending to the MTA?

Seems like the list may be locked. If so, and the lock is stale, you
can manually remove the lock from Mailman's locks/ directory, but
first be sure it isn't locked by some current process.
Sounds to me like the server is just too busy for the web to respond
before the browser time-out. I used to get this all the time on my
100K-500K member list sendings. If a message was still being
sent/processed, the web site would not respond, or would respond very
slowly. It is generally the case that servers consider other task,
including smtp, a higher priority than http requests. This can cause
http requests to time out if the server resources are otherwise occupied.
