Found it, thanks.  

That message had several base64 attachments.
I decoded the attachments by hand using "mmdecode -u"
and have posted them at http://www.kegel.com/wilma/
to save others the trouble.

p.s. Say, is it too much to ask that the mailman archives
provide a search engine?  Maybe something like this needs
to be integrated into the mailman distribution...
