Yesterday after 5 years of operation ou mailman application has "died" it seems to be barely running taking 3 or more hours to process lists...previous load was <0.2 now its around 1 with a python process absorbing 1 CPU constantly.

We are running on RHEL3-32bit and the errors are,


Error log for Mailman (vuwunicosmtp004.vuw.ac.nz:/var/log/mailman/error)


RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

Feb 17 07:48:26 2010 (13368) SHUNTING: 1266281245.229378+bd3f1d42e27ad38cf532b809460a0b0a8aef00e7

The last number is a message ID in Mailman queue


We have a similar case via googling suggesting a DNS issue, however we have spent some hours checking DNS as well as the server and cant find any obvious fault.


Any ideas please?
