I kind of figured it was something like that ... although MM 2.0.13 never
encountered problems like this (that I knew of).  I did, however, recently
upgrade to Redhat 8.0.

I have noticed that, on occasion, I have a sendmail task that will sit for
extended periods of time in 'data' mode ... the PS entry looks like this:

31445 ?    S  0:02 sendmail: h07Knsb2031445 localhost []: data

When I looked at the mail queue file's associated with id
"h07Knsb2031445", they were defintely associated with the mailing list.

I'll give it a try ... but even after I applied the patch, I saw the hung
task again.
