Temporary SOLUTION.

After placing a bug report in debian, i have been given two files to
make debug information work.

"replacements for /usr/lib/python2.3/smtplib.py
and /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Logging/Utils.py that will enable
smtplib-debugging to work (you still have to patch SMTPDirect.py) "

I went in and renamed smtplib.py to smtplib.py.1
put the new file in and deleted smtplib.pyc ad smtplib.pyo
Then renamed /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Logging/Utils.py to Utils.py.1
(make sure its this one...there is at least 5 files called Utils.py)
put the new file in and deleted Utils.pyc and Utils.pyo

/etc/init.d/mailman restart
tail -f /var/log/mailman/error

while i was watching this i sent an emial to my testing group, etc.

Long story short. I replaced these files, removed pyc and pyo and
suddenly everything works like magic again. No more timeouts.
I'll try to get originals back in place and see how that works. I'll
keep you posted.

You can get the files from....
