'restart' won't issue this message. This message comes from doing
'mailmanctl start' without first doing 'mailmanctl stop' and waithing
for everything to stop.

This is an exception reported by OutgoingRunner when SMTPDirect
encounters an uncaught socket.error exception.

There is no debug output from smtplib.

Which Mailman/Handlers/SMTPDirect.py did you patch? is there a
SMTPDirect.pyc in the same directory with a timestamp later than
SMTPDirect.py? The timestamp on SMTPDirect.pyc should be the time of
the first 'mailmanctl restart' following the change to SMTPDirect.py.
