[Mailman-Users] Excessive cpu usage

This episode does bring up some thoughts though. My problem was for the
most part that I didn't know where to look ("ps aux | grep mail" would
have made a good place to start, but that was my fault :o), and the logs
didn't give me anything. Failure to contact an smtp server should
perhaps be logged in mailman's logfiles, what do you think?

I'm not so sure that "stupid" is the correct word to use here.  We
all do things which, with hindsight, seem we should not have done or
something we should have caught.  It's good to know that the "fix"
was something so simple.
