[Mailman-Users] Need some help, lost messages, now getting "caught a bug error" on admin page

I'm really hoping that someone can help me with this:
Mailman says that it's lost 4 messages.  There's no trace of them in
mailman/data, and in /mailman/logs/vette, they're all listed as
discarded posting -- does that mean that a list admin discarded them?
if so, then why do they appear as lost messages on the admin web page,
and is there any relationship to the bug message that's appearing at the
bottom of the admin requests page?

for what's worth, I'm running Mailman 2.0.5 on a Redhat 7.1 machine.
here's the error from the log:

<--begin snip from logs:>

any help would be greatly appreciated.
