If there were messages in qfiles/out/, but they weren't being picked up
by OutgoingRunner, OutgoingRunner was in some funny state or it may
have been hung waiting for a low level SMTP response.

For whatever reason, OoutgongRunner wasn't doing its job. Restarting
Mailman got it going again. Possibly something as simple as sending it
a SIGHUP would have started it too.
