    Beats me. Sounds like the problem is elsewhere, although I still 
would bet that having those 20,000 files out of the way will help with 
that page loading once you do find the actual problem. But I don't know 
the "guts" of Mailman, so no idea what to suggest next. Sorry! I'll be 
very interested to know if someone comes up with a fix.
