[Mailman-Users] post and smtp logs?

Can anyone tell me at what point in the process of delivering
list messages does information get written to logs/post and
logs/smtp ?

Currently a message comes in, postfix hands it off to
mailman and the message is written to the qfiles/out
directory within a second or so.

But it isn't until two, maybe two and a half hours later
an entry for the message is made in the logs when the
message is finally sent out.  What is mailman doing in
that long interval?  The outgoing queue runner is running,
staying mostly idle.

Mail that is not routed through mailman behaves normally,
getting processed quickly.  Two+ hours seems like a long
time for mailman to be twiddling its thumbs.
