Not unusual -- mailman uses a queue and a queue runner that runs once
a minute out of cron. So your message will sit until the queue runner
Majordomo runs things directly out of the alias file, so it's faster
-- but if 100 messages hit your server at once, majordomo will drive
the server to its knees, while mailman will sequentially process
them. So majordomo will be faster in the trivially easy cases, and
mailman will scale and keep your system from barfing under heavy load
