I wonder if this could be the Postfix-returning-450-instead-of-550 known
bug in Mailman 2.1.2.  If you have local addresses on your list that are
non-existent, MM2.1.2 will spin heavily retrying delivery.  There's a
FAQ entry describing changes you can make to your main.cf file to
prevent this.  MM2.1.3 will also fix this problem.  I expect 2.1.3 to be
released next weekend -- we need to clear up some i18n issues before I
can make the release.
