This won't do what you want.  The problem isn't that the users lack a
password -- they probably do have one.  If its the bug I'm thinking
about, it was that Mailman couldn't find the passwords for users who
had subscribed with mixed case username parts.  For this, AFAIK, the
only remedy is upgrading.
