[Mailman-Users] Exception in ScanMessage for MIME messages with missing boundary

(Is this the right place to report bugs ?)
One of the lists on my system received a bounce with an empty body,
but with Content-Type: multipart/report. When Mailman tried to parse
it it got an exception because it couldn't find the message boundary.
Below you'll find the relevant part from the Mailman error log, and a
copy of the Exim queue file (the -H file; since there was no body the
-D file is not interesting) in which you can see the message headers.
