Thanks for the insight Michael... If a junk address is indeed all it
takes to cause Mailman to hang then it's quite disapointing ...
How would I go about finding that junk address (there are more than 200
in that list) ? Isn't it true that all addresses must have been valid at
some point ? (otherwise people wouldn't have been able to confirm their
subscription). That makes it hard to see which ones are junk ...
