[Mailman-Users] Single List not Working

I have a single list among 10 others running on Mailman 2.1.5 under SuSE
9.2 with Postfix MTA. All the lists are working but one list.

Monitoring /var/log/mail I see the message come in and get handed off to
mailman for every list, including "problemlist".

Monitoring ~mailman/logs/* I see the message post for all lists except

I have verified I can even send a message to the owner of problemlist.

In reviewing the FAQ
(http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq03.014.htp) I
have verified that everything there is accurate. Obviously, if it works
for every other list, things should be okay.

Since I can send a message to the owner of the list, it seems to only be
a problem with the post script for that particular list. Has something
become frozen?

There are no lock files, no qfiles. When I send a message to
problemlist, not a single entry is made in any of the log files. But
when I send to any other list, one immediately shows up in post.

Now, postfix config got mucked up a few days ago and there were many
rejections by the local mail host for problemlist. My guess is some
setting somewhere got flagged telling the list to stop trying, but I
can't tell what or where, especially since bounce processing was turned
off for this list.

Thank you.
