Two things are critical before we can move forward: we need to know
what versions of the various bits of software you're running (and that
includes OS, Python, Mailman, and Exim), and we need to see those
tracebacks.  Feel free to send along excerpts from logs/error and any
Exim syslog entries that are relevant.
