[Mailman-Users] Why so long a delay?

We are running mailman 2.1 on a RedHat Linux 8.0 system, using 
sendmail-8.12.5-7, and using the         /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd 
-ODeliveryMode=defer \
-ODaemonPortOptions=Name=MSA,Port=2525,M=E,Addr= line in the 
init script.
Incomming messaages get routed through mailman quickly:

Feb 11 11:09:18 zuul sendmail[28748]: h1BH9H2d028747: 
to="|/home/mailman/mail/mailman post ipnsstaff", 
ctladdr=<ipnsstaff at zuul.pns.anl.gov> (8/0),
  delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=prog, pri=31420, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

but then things get queued, and stay queued for a long long time

Feb 11 11:09:24 zuul sendmail[28751]: h1BH9NKo028751: 
to=<MMoser at anl.gov>, delay=00:00:01, mailer=esmtp, pri=3985906, 
dsn=4.4.3, stat=queued

unless I restart sendmail, when they all get dispersed.

Can anyone advice me on this condition?
