BTW, this means there's a qrunner lock (meaning the system thinks
there's still a qrunner process running).  Is there (still a qrunner
running at the time)?  If so, what's it doing?

Since you appear to have qrunner running every minute, is it possible
that qrunner is just taking a *long* time to finish when you have
a large mail message?  Or is it dead?

Are there messages in logs/error?
