[Mailman-Users] Mailman Qrunner process memory hungry

I recently upgraded a maillist server from Debian Squeeze to Wheezy. We had no
problem with it until the upgrade.

In 1-2 weeks mailman's OutgoingRunner and BounceRunner processes eat all
the memories and a lot of swap.
The box has 1,5GB RAM and 2G swap.

Mailman version is: 1:2.1.15-1
There are 2 lists with around 40k addresses with one letter per week, the
other lists are small.

Can you help me why are the qrunner processes eat all the memory, and what can I do
against it?
I don't believe that the solution is to write a cron job to restart periodically.
