	Check the FAQ at <http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py> and 
search for things like "performance" and "large".  I suspect you may 
be running into Python locking issues, but you may also be having 
some filesystem or disk subsystem problems.  A lot of discussion has 
occurred on the list regarding "large" mailing lists (e.g., those 
with 100k subscribers or more), and we've tried to encode this 
information in the FAQ, with links to good threads in the archives, 

	Before going too much further, I'd recommend checking the FAQ, 
searching the archives, etc....
