MORE: [Mailman-Users] Problem with qrunner OutgoingRunner

I have just tested a post to a new list created with the 2.1.2
mailman. Pretty much the same behavior, the .pck and .db files are
created in qfiles/out. They look normal when I peek in with dumpdb.
But nothing leaves the machine. No apparent errors anywhere.

Can I run the "qrunner --runner=OutgoingRunner:0:1 -s" manually and
add some kind of degugging flag?
