[Mailman-Users] New list fails to archive

Thanks Mark.  Just the advise that was needed.  

Turns out that my script in init.d/ couldn't find its pid and so didn't
known how to shut anything down.  I had to use kill pid commands from
the ps listing.  But when it restarted, the archive runner started up
with the rest of them and the archives I was watching got populated with
a few tests.  

I think I'm in business here.  

Thanks for the help.
