The answer is:

it depends. If qrunner is already running when cron spawns qrunner, 
the new one can't get the lock and exits. that's a feature.

If qrunner isn't running and it can't get a lock, that's a problem, 
usually permission, sometimes a leftover lock.

So you need to go into the system and see what it's doing at the 
time. If you see the log entry hit, try "ps -ef | grep mailman" and 
see what's going on with mailman. And check your ~mailman/locks 
directory for leftover lock files and the like.

And make sure check_perms runs clean.

You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.
