if the log shows nothing, I've seen this before. turns out a user had an 
embedded NUL character (ascii 0), and it caused the file I/O routines to 
see a premature EOF. Mailman needs to protect itself from this by 
stripping weird ascii characters as the messages enter the system...

Yes, yes, I've finally finished my home page. Lucky you.

   To the optimist, the glass is half full.
   To the pessimist, the glass is half empty.
   To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
