	This is a known issue with some installations of Mailman 2.1.x. 
So far as I recall, it seems to be a problem mostly with large lists 
and internal Python locking issues or somesuch, but you'd have to 
search the archives for the details.

	I believe that version 2.1.5 was intended to at least partially 
address this issue.
