Can you update/upgrade or simply reinstall Python on this server? The
delays you observed _must_ be occurring in the Python interpreter
itself, but this seems _impossible_ since the interpreter shouldn't be
affected by which list or a change in list membership.

I wonder if there could somehow be some interaction through the file

Barry is often on the #mailman irc channel at freenode.net. It might be
best to ping him there.
