[Mailman-Users] add_members leaves zombies around

I have just been doing a little list rearrangement which involved 
subscribing 500 members to a list using add_members.  Part way through 
I noticed that my system had a huge number of python zombie processes 
around - looks suspiciously as though add_members is forking once per 
new member but nothing is cleaning up afterwards.  This also caused the 
script to bomb out after a couple of hundred.
