Hi all,

On Slackware 9.1 (kernel 2.4.22), Mailman 2.1.5, Python 2.3.4, Sendmail 8.12.10:

ps shows -

26185 ?        S      0:00 sendmail: accepting connections
26187 ?        S      0:00 sendmail: Queue runner at 00:25:00 for /var/spool/client
 1359 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=NewsRunner:0:1 -s
 1360 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=BounceRunner:0:1 -s
 1361 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=RetryRunner:0:1 -s
 1362 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=CommandRunner:0:1 -s

The qrunner daemon was fired up by the mailman script copied to /etc/rc.d and
called in rc.local at boot time.

When I post to a test list mail sits forever in qfiles/in
The entry is owned by daemon.mail (mailman was conf'd with --mail-gid=daemon)

The mail will sit there until I run (as mailman OR root):  qrunner -r All

Where have I veered off course?!!
