FAQ 3.14 has most of the relevant advice that I could provide.  If 
you didn't find anything there that was helpful to you, then I'm not 
sure I can say much of anything more.

It might be in qfiles/shunt/, but if that was the case then it 
shouldn't be gumming up the rest of the works.  If it was gumming up 
the works, it should be in qfiles/in/.

An alternative may be that your MTA keeps trying to deliver it to 
Mailman, but is not successful.  So, the message isn't recorded in 
the Mailman queues, and the MTA keeps trying to redeliver the message.

Either way, this should show up in the Mailman logs and in the MTA logs.
