OK. That's as it should be.

OK. That's good too.

I'm stumped. It should work.  Look in Mailman's qrunner logs for these
machines. When a runner exits (unfortunately not when it starts)
mailmanctl reports several things including its slice info. Do you see
any of these and do they look as expected, e.g., 0/3 on the first
machine, 1/3 on the second and 2/3 on the third?.

Also, from what to what did you upgrade?
