I didn't respond because I basically don't have any answers for you.

There's the standard stuff in the FAQ about large qrunner processes 
and the command-line programs, but your situation seems to be a bit 
different from what they're talking about, so it didn't seem relevant 
to me to refer you to those FAQ items.

At this point, all I can suggest is that you either wait longer for 
bin/discard to do it's thing, or you manually remove the relevant 
files with rm.  Of course, you'll probably want to do that while 
Mailman is shut down, and you'll want to move aside and remake all 
relevant subdirectories because once a directory has gotten large 
(like tens or hundreds of thousands of files), it will never get 
smaller again and that will always hurt directory access times from 
that point forward.

In other words, basic sysadmin stuff.
