[Mailman-Users] digest-mode not functioning properly

Some more data. Hosting provider can't find anything wrong. I have set  
a new list, fake users for testing purposes. Set one of them for  
standard the other for digest-mode and played with size limits and  
daily and everything worked as expected, in this test list, whereas  
the two large list are not sending any digest-mode, with the exact  
same settings, even if I decrease the value to 256 or if I trigger  
sending a new digest dispatch right now, which does not happen. I'm  
totally amazed. I've seen the archives of mailman and, unfortunately,  
the problems with digest-mode appear to be rather common, many reports  
found, but not really solutions, at least, I could not find the one  
that will fix my bug.
Thanks again for your help and suggestions
