Probably one or more of your qrunners stopped. At this point, you can
look at Mailman's qrunner log and possibly see entries about runners
stopping and being restarted until the limit is reached. If so, there
will also be a small bit of information as to why (what signal or
condition) caused the runner to stop. There may also be something in
Mailman's 'error' log from the same time.

If it happens again see items 5 - 8 at
