There may be a message in the queue that Mailman cannot handle (there are 
some headers that screw-up that version of Mailman...).  It could be that 
you have stopped cron for some reason - it happens a lot to folks on this 
list, though durn if I can figure out why they do it...

It could be that you have lock file holding open your list, check the lock
