Well it might have been a combination of the following:
1) some fool screwed up the MX record for the mail server (it was pointing
to a CNAME (domain alias) probably thinking it was not an alias.
2) some fool compiled mailman with gid 0 (root) instead of gid 2
3) some fool didn't have xntpd running on the server so it was a day
behind in times.

That same fool had to restart the server to make certain everything was
in order.

You can only guess who the fool was :)  Thanks for the info, Mike!
