[Mailman-Users] Single list dies for no apparent reason

I'm seeing a weird problem on our listserver. A single list is giving me
headaches -- the Web interface for the listadmin becomes inaccessible
(nothing is returned to the client browser from the Web server), and I
see these entries in MAILMAN_DIR$/locks:
-rw-rw-r-- 2 nobody mailman 59 Jun 7 17:51 topnews.lock
-rw-rw-r-- 2 nobody mailman 59 Jun 7 17:51
-rw-rw-r-- 1 nobody mailman 59 Jun 7 17:51
-rw-rw-r-- 1 nobody mailman 59 Jun 7 18:06
-rw-rw-r-- 1 nobody mailman 59 Jun 7 19:08
-rw-rw-r-- 1 nobody mailman 59 Jun 7 19:29
Sending an email to the list-request address creates more lock files,
but no reply from Mailman.
If I rm these, the list starts working again, but it only takes a day
for the list to fall over again. None of the other lists exhibit this
Note that while the date is correct, the time is isn't -- it's in the
future, off by several hours (about six in each case, I think). The
system date is correct, and I run ntp to synch the clock.
This is on a FreeBSD 4.3-STABLE box with Mailman 2.03; the Web server is
Apache 1.3.19 mod_ssl 2.8.2.
What could be causing this?
