[Mailman-Users] Start qrunner on ElCapitan (MacOS X Server)

I’m trying to start mailman on startup with ElCapitan.

I tried a plist in LaunchDaemons - that was working in the past with the command:
/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl -s start

this produces now the error:
Service only ran for 2 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 8 seconds

the error log says:
The master qrunner lock could not be acquired because it appears as if another
master qrunner is already running

So it starts, creates a lock as localhost … and then it tries to start again.

than I created a startup script as described here:

and it does … nothing

the only thing which works currently is starting it manually with sudo
and this is kind of inconvenient

I installed mailman manually without using macports or something like that.

I hope someone on the list can share some insight here.
