Every now and then, gate_news errors:

    Date: Wed, 30 Aug 2000 19:55:06 -0700 (PDT)
    From: mailman at pico.passedge.com (Cron Daemon)
    To: mailman at pico.passedge.com
    Subject: Cron <mailman at pico> /usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news

    Traceback (innermost last):
      File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 119, in ?
      File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 101, in main
      File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/LockFile.py", line 263, in unlock
	raise NotLockedError

This *looks* like perhaps the previous gate_news hadn't finished and the
locking mechanism isn't working right, but I'm only gating about a dozen
very low volume internal newsgroups.  I find it hard to believe that it
takes five minutes to process that...
