[Mailman-Users] Messages not being sent

I'm running Mailman 2.1.1 on a FreeBSD 4.8 server, with Sendmail as the 
MTA. It's installed from the Ports collection. We've been experiencing 
a problem were a user posts to a list, and the message is not delivered 
right away. From the mail logs, we can see that the post is being 
processed by the mailman executable, and the post is added to the 
archives. However, the post does not actually seem to get delivered. We 
discovered this after restarting the qrunners from an init script: 
suddenly, a whole bunch of posts went out, as if they had been queued 
for later delivery.

In fact, for important broadcast posts, we've gotten in the habit of 
manually restarting the qrunners to make sure they go out. Mailman logs 
show no errors that would seem to apply to this situation.

Any advice? What should I be looking for? Is there a way to periodic 
force the queue to be delivered?
