what version of python are you running? the README says

     It is recommended that you use Python 2.3.3, the latest release as
     of this writing (31-Dec-2003).  Mailman will work with Python
     2.2.3 as well, which is the latest release on the Python 2.2 branch.
     Mailman 2.1 is not compatible with Python 2.0 or any earlier

MM 2.1.x normally operates its qrunners as daemons, unlike MM 2.0.x 
which used a cron executed qrunner.

You appear to have a cron based qrunner yet say you are running a newly 
installed MM 2.1.4.

Did you install this over an earlier MM 2.0.x install and if so did you 
remove the old crontab before installing the one for the newer release?
