OK I'm further investigating my run_queue problems. The reason
it woudl just hang is there was a stale lock file.

If I clear the lock file I get:

Logging error: <StampedLogger to '/var/lib/mailman/logs/smtp-failures'>
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Logging/Logger.py", line 55, in __get_f
IOError: (24, 'Too many open files')
Original log message:

OK what's up?

Considering the country's population, of 230 million people, the U.S.
government agencies maintain an average of 15 files on every man, woman,
and child in this country.
