I believe I've found out how to reliably reproduce the performance
problemsI've noticed here at VA and at Kanga.Nu, and which Barry and 
another (forget name, sorry) have observed as well:

  1) Create a moderated list.

  2) Subscribe 200 addresses to the list (can be bogus addresses but
the local MTA must accept them)

  3) Post at least 30 messages of an average of at least 2K size to
the list.

  4) Go to the moderation page, approve every message, and hit

  5) Watch your system load peg and stay there for an obscenely long
