3. and 5. seem contradictory unless Mailman's real qfiles/ directory is
not the one in /var/spool/mailman.

In any case, the messages are being shunted because of some list
specific processing error (occurring after the moderation hold). You
have to look in Mailman's 'error' log and find what the error is. You
should find an error message with a traceback for each shunted
message. If you post one or more of those, we can help determine the
problem. Once the underlying problem is resolved, you can run
bin/unshunt to reprocess the shunted messages.
