Did you exit the withlist between the two tries ? You might have screwed up
one (1) of the subscribers, but definately not more of them. If you exited
the withlist without doing m.Save(), nothing happened because of it. If you
didn't exit, but re-did the for loop, the changes you'd made would have been
saved by the m.Save() at the end, but most of those people would've been set
to digest. Only the one that was being processed when you pressed ^C *might*
be screwed up.
