Stale bounce info is not actually deleted until another bounce is
received. Normally, this is not a problem as when the new bounce is
received, the old info is stale and the score is reset to 1.0 for the
Prior to Mailman 2.1.10, there is a problem in cron/disabled in that if
the threshold for a list is reduced to a value less than a current stale
score, the staleness isn't detected and the member is disabled.
In 2.1.10 cron/disabled is fixed and will actually delete stale bounce info.
