I am actually running 2.1.a2 in production and for the most part it is 
performing extremely well :)

However, I run news2mail on 13 lists. Up until this am, I had no troubles.
When I run gate_news, the following occurs:

% /usr/local/bin/python -S /usr/mailman/cron/gate_news

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 232, in ?
   File "/usr/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 213, in main
   File "/usr/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 189, in process_lists
     poll_newsgroup(mlist, conn, start, last+1, glock)
   File "/usr/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 118, in poll_newsgroup
     msg = p.parsestr(NL.join(lines))
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages/mimelib/Parser.py", line 
46, in parsestr
     self._parse(root, 0, StringIO(text))
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages/mimelib/Parser.py", line 
93, in _parse
     self._parsebody(container, lineno, fp)
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages/mimelib/Parser.py", line 
128, in _parsebody
mimelib.Errors.BoundaryError: Couldn't find terminating boundary (line 31)

When I looks at ~/mailman/logs, the 'fromusenet' file has only 1/2 the 
groups in it and it seems like it stalled on the 6th group .

While I may be able to manually set the watermark and/or simply FIX this, I 
am wondering what caused this and if there is a fix.?

In addition, if news2mail bombs in one newsgroup, why doesnt it report the 
error to ~/logs/error and KEEP ON GOING?
