Like I said, the runners are running.

The message was in qfiles/in and once I reverted back to 2.1.14, rebooted and restarted mailman
it got delivered.

On a possibly related note, when I ran mailmanctl stop the 2.1.18 IncomingRunner did not die.
Doing a kill -KILL on it would kill it, but it would immediately respawn.  After several attempts
to get rid of it, I installed 2.1.14 and rebooted the server.
