Are you rotating your Mailman logs with newsyslog or some other log
rotator? If so, you have to be sure that you issue a HUP to the
master-qrunner process.. for Newsyslog I do something like this (it's a
single line entry in newsyslog.conf):

/usr/local/mailman/logs/mischief mailman:mailman 664 7 * @T000005 J

Hope this helps!
