What's in the log prior to this for the 10 deaths that required restart?

The idea is the master mailmanctl daemon watches the qrunner processes
and if one dies (for some, but not all reasons), the master restarts
it, but once it reaches the limit of 10 (coded in mailmanctl), it
stops the restarting on the theory that this is a "hard error" and we
don't want to loop forever on it.

Bounce runner processes the queued bounces, but rather than processing
them as they come and going through the list lock, load and save
process for each bounce, they are stored in the bounce-events-.pck and
that in turn is processed once every (default, controlled by
REGISTER_BOUNCES_EVERY) 15 minutes in list order so the list is only
locked, loaded and saved once.

I still don't know what the underlying issue is, possibly you have so
many bounces that the bounce-events-.pck reaches some size limitation.
What does the 'qrunner' log say about the deaths? What's in the
'error' log.
