Using ps, find the pid of the master qrunner process (the one with a
command line like "/usr/bin/python /var/mailman/bin/mailmanctl -s -q
start") and send it a SIGTERM. After it and all the qrunners stop,
make sure there are no master-qrunner* files left in data/ and locks/,
In the future, don't delete these files. The locks/ files are to
prevent starting a second mailmanctl when one is already running and
are normally always present as is data/master-qrunner.pid when
mailmanctl is running.
