So all of a sudden my mailman ( version 2.1.9 ) quit working, returning
mail posted to lists with the error

   |/local/mailman/teamnet/mail/mailman post fot". Command output: Name
    "main::debugfile" used only once: possible typo at /local/majordomo/demime

    space left on device:

But there IS space on the disk.  Root and regular users can create new files just
fine, but mailman can't.  Any clue as to where to look for the culprit, and why
it would just start happening?
