[Mailman-Users] Weird Problems

I'm having some strange problems with Mailman and I can't seem to find 
the answers in the FAQ or previous postings. 

1) First off I have a user that sent a message to four of our lists.  
When I reviewed the logs her message only went to 3 of the 4 lists.  The 
first thing I done and redone is check this users permissions and they 
are correct.  I'm using the patch to allow us to create a list of all 
members that can post to a list and she is a member of this list.

2) The second odd thing that is happening is that I seem to have to 
start and stop mailman multiple times a day to get it to send messages.  
What makes this one odd is sometimes a message will come in and go out 
without a problem.  Other times it just gets stuck and the only way to 
make it go is to stop mailman, clean up the locks, and start mailman.  
I've looked at the contents of the lock files and find nothing unusual.  
I've check that the qrunners and they seem to be running as expected.

I'm running Mailman 2.1.5 with Postfix and Cyrus.

Any ideas/suggestions?  Any info from any of these files that might help 
diagnose what's going on here?
