[Mailman-Users] Anomalies since upgrading to 2.1.11

I've run into a couple of problems mailman which I can't seem to track
down through normal channels.  These seem to have appeared at the same
time that I upgraded to 2.1.11 from 2.1.9.

The most serious problem is that list owners/moderators are no longer
receiving notifications of pending subscription requests, possibly also
moderation requests (I host few moderated lists).  Settings haven't
changed, and admin_immed_notify is set to Yes.  The
listname-owner at listhost address works OK, and email sent explicitly to
this address is delivered properly.  All list traffic appears to work

I have 10442 files in /var/lib/mailman/qfiles/shunt, all of them dating
from early last month when I upgraded.  I don't know the purpose of this
directory, nor what the large number of files here indicates.

Starting about the same time, the mailman error log started showing a
large number of entries similar to the following, which are continuing
as of this date:

I don't know if these problems are related, but any advice will be
