Thanks Mark,

You are right!

It appears that rpm installation on SuSE installs automatically cron job for me.
# rpm -ql mailman-2.1.4-83.13 | grep /etc/init.d/mailman

There is another cron job I did myself, sitting at:

I'll just remove this one.

Best Regards,
Leon Kolchinsky

Is there more than one "mailpasswds" entry in mailman's crontab or perhaps crontabs installed for mailman in two different ways, e.g.
/var/spool/cron/mailman and /etc/cron.d/mailman?

Whatever the reason, it appears that cron/mailpasswds was run twice.
Either that or maybe you have a "backup" list on another server that also mailed passwords.
