I believe all I did in that case was to copy and paste the "Approved"
line from a previous email I sent, and it somehow got mutilated with

I think rejection if you find the password in the stripped-out HTML part
is a great idea. The dangerous part of this bug is that a failure in
parsing can lead to an admin password being broadcast over email to
hundreds of people. It seems like Mailman should either require the
header or plain-text email and not even allow HTML emails, or ensure
(via some liberal matching) that the password isn't going to get sent
out if parsing fails.
