I typically use konqueror when using the admin interface. could there be any 
relation there?

This is the intended behaviour of the locking mechanism, is it not?

Hi Jon,

As I tried to explain it does start delivering mail after a while. However, I 
can not figure what kicks it in shape again.

In addition, does the fact that the log files are there mean that qrunner 
dies? If so, how to find out why it does?
