[Mailman-Users] qrunner (?) probs

  I'm a relative new mailman admin with some knowledge to python but
basically zero admin experiences with mailman itself. I've set up a few
(~10) lists with mailman (v 2.0final-1, from deb package) and they seem to
work fine, except one list. This one spams /var/log/mailman/error like this:
Feb 02 11:05:01 2001 (7702) Delivery exception: illegal argument type for
built-in operation
Feb 02 11:05:01 2001 (7702) Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Handlers/HandlerAPI.py", line 82, in
    func(mlist, msg, msgdata)
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py", line 41, in process
    footer = string.replace(mlist.msg_footer % d, '\r\n', '\n')
TypeError: illegal argument type for built-in operation

..and I have no idea what's going on, or why this list aint work why others
all do. From the users point of view, they send a mail to the list, and
neither the mail arrives to the members of the list, nor they get back any
error. I've found all the sent mails in /var/lib/mailman/qfiles, and
/var/log/mailman/qrunner also grows slowly with such messages repeating:
Feb 02 09:19:13 2001 (5157) Exception reading qfile:
EOF read where object expected
Feb 02 09:20:03 2001 (5168) Could not acquire qrunner lock
Feb 02 09:21:03 2001 (5177) Could not acquire qrunner lock

I'm running linux 2.2.17 with the openwall patch, mailman 2.0final-1 patched
as well with openwall.py (and as I've stated before, I've a couples of
working lists on the same box).

Please cc me the answer, I'm not a usual member of the mailman-users list.
Thanks much in advance,
