like i mentioned earlier, when i approve a post with admindb, the webbrowser
stalls for several seconds before closing the connection... well i just found
out that it generates an error in my apache logs (See below)
is this a bug? or does this mean one of the databases is corrupted? if so, how
can i fix it?
i'm using mailman rc1 on Linux 2.0.36, i upgraded python to 1.5.2 yesterday,
but the same problems were before that.

ps: don't you all agree mailman needs more publicity? i think it's one of the
best mailinglist solutions... but one of the powers behind GNU like software is
when many people help to develop it; and i'm sure there are a lot of developers
out there who can and want to help... i gotta start learning python soon! :)
did rc1 get posted on freshmeat and stuff?
