[Mailman-Users] Odd little Error message

I just received this message. Can someone help me to know what I 
should do with it?

Traceback (innermost last):
   File "/home/mailman/cron/qrunner", line 282, in ?
     kids = main(lock)
   File "/home/mailman/cron/qrunner", line 252, in main
     keepqueued = dispose_message(mlist, msg, msgdata)
   File "/home/mailman/cron/qrunner", line 121, in dispose_message
     if BouncerAPI.ScanMessages(mlist, mimemsg):
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Bouncers/BouncerAPI.py", line 59, in ScanMessages
     addrs = func(msg)
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Bouncers/DSN.py", line 46, in process
     if string.lower(msg.gettype()) <> 'multipart/report' or \
TypeError: read-only character buffer, None

Without much knowledge of the guts of Python, I would say that the 
problem is with disposing a rejected message, but I want to get some 
ideas from you all first.
