[Mailman-Users] Mailman wedged.

Mailman (for some unknown reason) seems to be wedging on FreeBSD.
Right now, I've got 1500 files in the qfiles directory and they don't
appear to be going anywhere.  New messages do (eventually) get
delivered to the lists, but mail out from the lists (mainly digests)
don't ever get delivered (I can see them waiting the qfiles

Using lsof, I can see that the qrunner process has a socket open to
the mailer (which is postfix in this case) and that it has transmitted 
and recieved 0 bytes.  I tried setting the SMTPHOST variable to
indicate other hosts (one running postfix, the other running sendmail) 
and still qrunner sits neither transmitting or receiving (or
generating any useful log messages) aparently hung until the mailer
closes the connection.

Sep  1 12:33:02 trooper sendmail[12878]: KAA12878: timeout waiting for input from spitfire.velocet.net during message collect

Does anyone have any idea why this happens?
