Description of problem:
From the author:
I've just released Mailman 2.0.5 which fixes a problem with stale lock
files that can occur under certain situations when the user hits the
`Stop' button on their browser.  These stale lock files can cause
mailing lists to be inaccessible for long periods of time (until the
stale lock file times out or is manually removed).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
See above

Comment 1 Péter, Soós 2001-05-08 03:30:53 EDT
I uploaded the updated mailman 2.0.5 rpm packages to incoming.redhat.com

From the changelog:

* Tue May 08 2001 Peter Soos <sp@osb.hu>
- update to 2.0.5 bugfix release
- better use of rpm macros (e.g. use %{_libdir} instead of redefining datadir
