[Mailman-Users] One list having problems

I'm running about 20-30 lists on Mailman 2.0.13.  There's one particular
list that's having problems with both lockfiles showing up in
$MAILMAN_HOME/locks/ and config.db.tmp.* files showing up in

The PID referenced in the config.db.tmp file shows up as being:
[minter at bunning blueclaws]$ ps auxwww | grep -i 91332
nobody  91332 60.6  3.2 17172 16500  ??  R     1:28PM   0:37.32
/usr/local/bin/python -S /home/mailman/scripts/driver admin (python2.1)

(if that's any help)

The list admin reports regular problems with not being able to sign into
their list admin interface.  Other lists on the same machine work fine.

Does anyone have any pointers on where I could look to track down the
problem with this one list?  Running "grep -i listname error" doesn't show
anything in the main error logs.
