I'm certain the bug is not in Apache as it also occurs on post passing straight to the list without going thru moderation. It is possible it is in Exim, tho I'd be extremely surprised. For one I've reinstalled all binaries from known good sources, and have MD5ed all Exim files against both known good sources and the copies installed on other happily running machines. It is also unlikely that the bug is in the kernel as I've reproduced the problem with kernels built on other (untouched) machines and then installed on the offending machine, and on kernels built locally from cryptographically verified source balls.
I am running mailman from the beginning of mailman developing (John Viegas version, Im not sure if the name is correct, but cheers John). It runs on SMP machine and I have never such a problem. I have seen problems with forking of sendmail into 1000 processes while delivering messages in big (500 members) lists after comminting pending request. It is normal and I have solving it by changing the parametr, whichwas called like number of delivering processes. But my kernel was never confused from this like Yours. I would say, Your memory chips are wrong. User space program can never corupt filesystem.
