I completed my mailman installation, but I ran into a problem with crontab.
I have to run "/usr/bin/python -S /home/mailman/mailman/cron/qrunner" every
time in order for the messages to be processed.  Below is the cron job for
both user mailman and root. 

I configured mailman with the following switches:

./configure --prefix=/home/mailman/mailman --with-mail-gid=mail

Thanks in advance.
