We tracked Andreas' problem down to the qrunner cron job not being
installed, a common problem for upgraders from what I've seen.  Please
first be absolutely sure this isn't your problem!  You can test this
by cd'ing into /home/mailman and running

    % python -S cron/qrunner

if that unclogs things, your cron isn't set up right.  If not, then
we'll need to look at things more closely.  To start with, you can
send me the output of "bin/dumpdb qfiles/whatever.db" and the
associated .msg file.  Also, look in the log files, especially
logs/error and see if there's anything relevant.
