Mh pause, any way to track/debug why it paused? and swap prevention in Linux

Greg Moeller
I've got MH running on a pretty much dedicated linux box and from time
to time I get "MH paused for 8 seconds"
I realize this is caused by mh doing/starting something that takes time
to complete without mh able to do anything else.
Is there anyway to start a debugging mode or logging so I can tell what
it might be doing that caused the lockup?

Also, this machine has ALOT of RAM and there's no need for mh to swap
any bits out, but Linux has a need to suck up as much RAM as possible
for buffer use.  Anyone happen to know a way to tell linux to not swap
the mh process out?

Thanks

Greg
