You haven't mentioned Mailman's 'error' log. Is there one (it's
possible there isn't if there's never been an error)? If so, is there
anything in it? Most error log entries won't include the list name so
your grep wouldn't find them.

That shouldn't be necessary. But, if the message gets to qfiles/in, it
shouldn't disappear without some log message. What happens if you post
a message to the list with Mailman's bin/inject?
