	I am running a 4.7-STABLE Freebsd Machine. The truss command is
used to trace system calls. Cpu in a PIII 500. we have 256 megs of ram
and 512 Megs of swap. Disks are not busy at all. With the archive off it
seems to be okay but as soon as archiving is switched on the messages
start to queue up in ~/mailman/qfiles/archives and ~/mailman/qfiles/in.

	On one of the lists it could be up to 30 messages per minute.
