I had some 450's in my maillog, but they were all because another
local alias didn't exist. Creating the alias didn't change the 100%
CPU time eating of the qrunner. I also changed my Postfix to 
(but no avail).

I think maybe my qfiles/ dir or data/pending.pck is corrupt (or
something completly different), but I can't find anything strange
with "check_db" or "dump_db". I'll give mailman 2.1.3 a try when
it's available. 

Is there a way a way to get some more debug info on what the
OutgoingRunner is doing?


"Close" only counts in horseshoes, handgrenades and
thermonuclear devices.
