As I have said, there is nothing in the logs. It is the master qrunner 
which is crashing. As I tried to restart it I got this error:

Oct 12 08:01:59 mig29 mailman: The master qrunner lock could not be 
acquired.  It appears as though there is
Oct 12 08:01:59 mig29 mailman: a stale master qrunner lock.  Try re-running 
mailmanctl with the -s flag.
After running mailmanctl -s start it was started.
Version is 2.1.5 as I stated in the subject.
The last message in the log is: Starting mailman: succeeded.
