Yes, with work.  there multiples running (5)?  I don't know how or why, 
but there were 5 full instantiations running.  Killed everything by hand 
(mailmanctl stop was useless), and restarted it and everything *seems* OK 

The files referenced were nowhere to be found, so picking them apart is a 
non starter.  Looks like a race condition: Does mailman not check to see 
if it's already running?

Also mentioned in the first post: yes.

This was a really odd event.  I'm pretty surprised to find 5 copies 
happily beating each other up without checking.  Could this be a build 
issue (FreeBSD - I know there are reported "difficulties" here)< or does 
MM not check?

Thanks for the guidance!
