I've done some debugging and narrowed it down to a call to
cPickle.loads() in Mailman/Cookie._debabelize() which didn't return
and didn't raise an exception.

Then I found various postings in c.l.python about crash type bugs
(unitialized things, heap corruption, core dump) in cPickle in the
Python 1.5.2 codeline.

So I upgraded to Python 2.1 and the problem went away. Lets hope
Mailman will work with 2.1...
