This can ultimately become more serious. If VirginRunner continues to
die at times, after the 10th time, it won't automatically restart and
you will need to manually restart Mailman.

In that case, all VirginRunner was doing was waking up, checking it's
queue, finding it empty and going back to sleep which it and most of the
other runners except RetryRunner do every QRUNNER_SLEEP_TIME (1 second

Since all the runners are basically doing the same loop, this may not
always affect VirginRunner.

The bottom line is if you can't figure out why this is happening and
stop it (and I don't think I can help much here) you'll have to monitor
to be sure no runner is not restarted because of the restart limit and
restart Mailman if necessary or maybe periodically whether needed or not.
