The traceback seems to indicate that the script is waiting for some
locks. You might try running:

mailmanctl stop

Then wait a few minutes (to give everything time to shut down) and
run: ps uaxf | grep -i python and see if there are any mailman-related
processes still running. I would kill them, but this might cause
problems or there might be a better way. (I.e., wait a bit to see if
anyone else on the list has a better idea.)
