>I have a strange problem with a mailman installation on a new server that I have not experienced before.  Sometimes mailman will forward me bounced emails that it cannot process automatically.  Other times mailman's bounce processer seems to get stuck.  It accumulates these emails until I restart the server.  Then it sends me hundreds of these.  I have not been able to figure out why it gets stuck.  I have been unsuccessful in reproducing the problem.

It seems that perhaps BounceRunner is dying so the bounces are queued
but not processed until you restart.

Check Mailman's 'qrunner' and 'error' logs for clues as to why this is
happening. Possibly some malformed spam is being sent to the -bounces
address and causing problems for BounceRunner.
