It sounds to me like qrunner is failing to process the queued files. Can you
test-run the cron job, exactly as it's entered, to ensure that it works?

If the queued files are in the mailman/qfiles/in directory, then I'd guess
that qrunner is unable to get to them. If they're in the
mailman/qfiles/shunt directory, then qrunner had an error processing them.
There should be something in your logs that will give you a clue about the
problem. (BTW, I'm not entirely sure about the preceeding, since I haven't
read the code.)

In any case, check the mailman/logs directory for error messages in any of
the files.

Beyond that, I don't know. I run 2.1, which has a different qrunner system.
