I doubt this is the whole problem, but the number of slices must be a
power of two even though this isn't checked - i.e., your configuration
will be accepted, but there may be issues with the retry queue.

Also, you said later in the thread that processes don't seem to be
failing. I assume you've checked both Mailman's 'error' and 'qrunner'
logs and also 'ps' when you have a problem to see that all the runners
are still there.
