Once the list has become broken, have the ownership and/or permissions
changed?  Are the Mailman queue runners still running?

One possibility is that a helpful overnight job is "improving" things.  If
not improving permissions, then perhaps stopping the Mailman queue runners
for some reason and not restarting them.

(I thought first of the permissions, so wrote that first.  But the queue
runners are easier to check and perhaps more likely, so if it were me I'd
look at that first.)
