Hi all,

So, this problem with messages with attachments in 2.0b4 and b5 is
completely reproducible.  Every message with an attachment larger than
about 40K hangs the list -- files get added to the qfiles directory, but
they get backed up behind the stuck message.

Until I manually remove the messages from the qfiles directory and delete
the lock files, I get the following error in the qrunner log:

Aug 10 11:51:00 2000 (70047) qrunner begining
Aug 10 11:52:00 2000 (70116) qrunner begining
Aug 10 11:52:02 2000 (70116) Could not acquire qrunner lock
Aug 10 11:52:02 2000 (70116) qrunner ended
Aug 10 11:53:00 2000 (70167) qrunner begining
Aug 10 11:53:01 2000 (70167) Could not acquire qrunner lock
Aug 10 11:53:01 2000 (70167) qrunner ended   

Eventually, I have to move the files into the qfiles directory one at a
time, weeding out the culprits by hand.

Anybody else seeing this behavior?  Any suggestions on solving it?
