This is probably normal behavior.  qrunner starts up from cron once a 
minute.  If there is a lock file laying around, it knows that an 
older qrunner is still active, and shuts itself down.

That being said, this message worried me too, and it's not the first 
time I have seen this question asked.  Maybe we could get a 
friendlier log message here?

Also, I recall older versions of Mailman having locking problems, 
that ended up with a lot of stale locks laying around.
