No, that's it.  As the message said, qrunner couldn't deliver the mail
because the lock file told it that qrunner was already running.  I had
that problem after every system crash when I was running RedHat 7.x and
Mailman 1.x until I fixed the /etc/rc.d/init.d/mailman script to make sure
those lock files got properly blown away on boot.

Don't ask me exactly what I changed, it was a long time ago.
