I have no idea what OS you're using and where the "source" code
is placed relative to the data files, etc... on your system, but on
Mailman default installations, /usr/local/mailman is the home
directory for *everything* related to Mailman, including
source/executable code, log files, data files, queue directories,
If you run a recursive grep of the sort you recommend on the
entire /usr/local/mailman directory hierarchy, you are likely to run
into the 20,000 file problem previously mentioned.
If you want to limit yourself to just the source code, you need
to search /usr/local/mailman/Mailman, /usr/local/mailman/bin, etc...
and make sure you don't include any of those log directories, queue
