[Mailman-Users] big lists

I'm managing a list with several 100K users on mailman v1.1. The only hassle
I have is with the sync_members function, which syncs a flat-text file of
e-mail addresses to our latest mailing list db. The last time around it took
almost a full day to finish, and our list is growing rapidly. We've got
pleny of juice behind it, too--an E-250 with tons of RAM. Any suggestions on
how scaling sync_members?
