[Mailman-Users] Excessive cpu usage

In some cases this problem is caused by the way that the MTA handles
local deliveries (where there is a problem with the local user).

In postfix for example, the default install has local bounces
mis-identified so that Mailman will try, try again to deliver to a bogus
local user address.  Nothing shows up in the logs, since the MTA
indicates that the user is legal, just not currently available.

I suggest that you-all look in the MTA log files to see if there are
multiple failed deliveries to a local user.

Barry has a work-around for this problem that will be included in the
next release.
