There are messages with broken MIME boundaries and mimelib barfs on
these.  I'm not sure this is the best solution, but the attached patch
ought to keep you going (untested).

Also, can I ask everyone who's playing with Mailman 2.1alpha to please
use the mailman-developers list instead of mailman-users?  From now
on, I'll just automatically change the Cc: on such messages to point
over there.
