Generally, as Brad noted in another reply, in a Mailman from source
installation, this issue comes about because the site decides to
install an upgrade in a new location, and the old crontab running the
old cron/mailpasswds against the old lists is left in place.

And it may not even work. I too have no idea how this happens, but
based on other reports including the one I pointed to in my prior
reply, there is some cPanel magic involved.
