I've got a similar situation here.  I'm running Debian sid: mailman
2.1.4-1 and postfix 1.1.11-0.woody3.  qrunner CPU usage seems to go
between 50-90%, and I'm not running any large lists (either in
subscribers or frequency of postings).  The machine should have
sufficient resources: 200M RAM and a PII 450MHz CPU.

Any ideas how to make mailman load more manageable?

I also noticed this Debian bug report, which suggests that there's
nothing that can be done:
