That's not a normal behavior of Sympa.

Whenever this problem would happen again, you should :
  1. check if process is running
  2. if not check what was the last file it was processing
  3. if process died, errors written to STDERR have been saved to a file in spool/tmp/$pid.stderr. The content of this file will be sent to the listmaster when you restart

For the third time, the spool/msg files are not being processed!

This didn't happen before I upgraded to 5.3b.4.

Obviously, this is not satisfactory for my list clients!

I shutdown sympa and re-started it, and eventually the spool was
processed.  But I can't do that every time.

Where should I look to fix this problem? There didn't seem to be
anything in the sympa log file.  Maybe increase debug level?

Not quite sure what to do, any help appreciated!
