I have an announce-only mailing list that has over 68,000

Strangely, mail delivery is working fine, but the web
access is giving me problems.

When I go to the admin part of the web page (i.e. to
change list options and maintain membership list) I type
in my password, and it just sits there and finally times

What's more interesting is that the load on the machine is
basically zero (about 0.5-0.2) and all other functions are

This problem also happens when I use the "add_members"
script (and maybe others, but I have not checked them
all).  I run the script, and it just sits there.

When I look at the process, it is not using very much CPU.
It's like it's waiting on a lock or something.

What else can I check?  I've looked at the logs briefly,
but I did not see anything that indicates a problem.

Again, the other web pages are OK (i.e. a member can look
at and change their options, etc. just fine).

Thanx for any help.

Plan to be spontaneous - tomorrow.
