[Mailman-Users] Strange errors

We are converting our lists from a different list server to mailman.
I am running a Solaris 10 box, with mailman-2.1.6rc4 and sendmail
version 8.13.3. Python version is 2.4.1.
I run sendmail in the following ways:
A normal sendmail daemon listening on port 25:
/usr/lib/sendmail -bd -q15m
A persistent queue runner:
/usr/lib/sendmail -qp1m -OPidFile=/var/run/sendmail-qrun.pid
A sendmail with submit.cf config:
/usr/lib/sendmail -Ac -q5m
A sendmail for smtp-auth listening on port 587:
/usr/lib/sendmail -bd -C/etc/mail/sendmail-auth.cf -q15m
Anyway, the problem we are having is this:
After running for several days with no errors, we suddenly start
seeing this error:
>>> Mail Delivery Subsystem <MAILER-DAEMON at xxxxxxx.xxx.xxx.xxx>

Has anyone seen this? Should I file a bug on this or send it along
to the developers list?
Restarting sendmail seems to get rid of the problem for a day or two.
All sendmail configs have the mailman alias file included and we run
newaliases to update it on every new list creation.
