Python is 2.2.1. Maybe this is problem. I will upgrade it.
There is nothing in the logs inbetween being restarted and crashing.
Master qrunner persists and crash randomly and not immediatly.
I am not using Red Hat supplied mailman RPM but I am using it's init script 
with path to program modifications.
Mailman from RH is an old version, that's why I installed the latest one.
I'll try your propositions and will see.
