[Mailman-Users] problems installing

We seem to be having similar problems, and no one is really making 
any good guesses.  One weird thing that I noticed is that if I kill 
all current qrunners, and remove all locks:

	killall qrunner; rm ~mailman/locks/*

then a new qrunner will pop up in a minute (from cron).  If I watch it in top:

	top -qUmailman

It uses a little CPU for a minute or two, and then slowly dies off to 
0% CPU usage.  It never does anything that I can see, and runs for a 
very long time.

Could I have a corrupted msg that is hanging qrunner?  The biggest 
file in qfiles is about 6k, so it's not a size issue...

WARNING: 'killall' may work very differently on various unix flavors. 
Don't do that on a Solaris box!
