[Mailman-Users] Excessive cpu usage

Something of the sort yes.. if I stop mailman, there is one message in
the out queue. However, using dumpdb reveals that this is just a normal
message being posted to a list, not a confirm message. dumpdb on the .db
file gives (I have replaced @ with 'at' in email addresses..)

{   'decorated': 1,
    'lang': 'en',
    'listname': 'configfiles-commits',
    'original_sender': 'arnarb at oddi.is',
    'origsubj': '[CVS] cvs-configfiles: poki.oddi.is/etc/mail/ exim',
    'received_time': 1054116645.529613,
    'recips': ['x at oddi.is', 'arnarb at oddi.is', 'x at oddi.is'],
    'tolist': 1,
    'version': 3}

and dumpdb on the .pck file gives the message source, complete with
mailman-added headers and all.
The headers are..

This sounds similar to a problem I'm having.  In my case, if I stop
qrunner there's a single message in the "out" queue. 
shows that it's a malformed confirm message.  Like you, nothing shows
in Mailman's nor (in my case) Postfix's logs.
