    | IOError: [Errno 4] Interrupted system call

Just that something's wrong with your mail server, or the connection
between it and Mailman, or something sent the qrunner process a signal
while it was in the middle of talking to your mail server.

Try this patch; it won't avoid the interrupted system call, but it
ought to handle the situation more gracefully (assuming it's a
transient problem).

Untested, but let me know if it works for you.
