All of the qrunner processes were active with the exception of the
OutgoingRunner.  I tried starting that by hand and it didn't seem very handy
(error messages below).  It keeps mentioning the Sendmail.py delivery module
shouldn't be used (currently I'm configured for the SMTPDirect mode) so I'm
assuming this qrunner process shouldn't be active.

Error message generated when a message was sent to the list (or a user
subscription was submitted):
May 05 17:47:06 2006 (11790) Uncaught runner exception: Use of the
Sendmail.py delivery module is highly discouraged
