The same thing happened to me while I was testing - check to see if you have a lockfile sitting around - when hypermail is killed, the lockfiles are left and prevent new messages from being processed ( there is a timeout though (default 1 hour), at which point hypermail assumes the lock is bogus and overrides it). The lockfile should be in the directory where the archived files are written, look for ".hypermail.lock".

If you test on the command line (cat msg | hypermail ...) use the -p option so you can watch the progress: this will tell you what it's waiting on.

Hope this helps,
