As you found out, it's because Mailman shutdown uncleanly and left a
stale lock file laying around. I've just checked in a patch to
mailmanctl to print a (hopefully) more informative error message in
I'm also planning to include a documentation on what to add to your
init.d and rc?.d directories so that mailmanctl plays nicely with Unix
run levels, but I'm a little concerned that my own knowledge here may
not be very cross platform, so I need to do a bit of research first.
