Im not sure what the cause is,
but mailman deliveries have become really slow on my mailman server.

For some reason, it may take a few hours for a mesage to be delivered
through a mailman mailinglist.

I notice that when delivering mail, python eats up a lot of CPU and quite a
chunk of memory

10:55am  up 38 days, 24 min,  2 users,  load average: 2.00, 2.09, 1.97
103 processes: 94 sleeping, 6 running, 3 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states:  0.6% user,  0.0% system,  0.0% nice,  1.2% idle
Mem:   514244K av,  509828K used,    4416K free,       0K shrd,    5256K buff
