I'd be willing to bet that you got a message that came in which had 
some malformed MIME structures, and that has clogged up the queue for 
that list.  More recent versions of Mailman are more resistent to 
this kind of problem, but not completely immune.  If you're not 
already running the latest version (2.1.9), I'd suggest looking into 
making that upgrade.

As for where to look, any time you have questions one of the best 
places to start looking is in the FAQ (see 
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py>) and the documentation 
(see <http://www.list.org/docs.html>).  In particular, FAQ 3.14 may 
be useful to you.

You should also check the archives of the list, and the instructions 
for doing that are in FAQ 1.18.
