[Mailman-Users] Hitting a bug in 2.0.6

Hi folks!  I've got mailman throwing up the "we've hit a bug page" on a
set of archives for me pretty consistently.  The python traceback says
something about "OverflowError: integer multiplication" (I've included
the whole output below).  It's showing up in gzip.py, but these archives
aren't especially large or anything like that.  I'm pretty stumped as to
what's causing it, or how to go about fixing it.  Thanks for any hints,

P.S.  I'm set to nomail from this list at the moment, so I'd appreciate
copying me on replies.
