If you're really getting nothing in any of Mailman's log files, then
you're going to start having to add "debugging prints" to the
gate_news script.  For Mailman, this means adding syslog() calls.  You
can use anything as the first argument, but I typically use 'debug',
which writes output to $prefix/logs/debug, which I then tail to watch
as things go.
