yup, the mailman user's crontab was installed as part of the rpm  
installation, and i've also tried running qrunner manually w/ the  
command it's issuing, and i don't receive any errors.

assuming mailman's home is /var/mailman, where would i look for the  
"qfiles" file.  a "find ./ -name "qfiles" -print" from /var/mailman  
doesn't return anything.

this is actually the version of mailman that shipped w/ redhat 7.3.   
i've got it running on a different machine that was installed via the  
same process.  i wouldn't necessarily have any issues w/ upgrading to  
the 2.1 branch (the automatic attachment and html email filtering would  
be nice), but i'd still like to know if there's any particular reason  
why this isn't working.
