[Mailman-Users] ImportError with regex and binascii? List has stopped sending

A follow-up to my earlier problem. My mail was not going through and I was 
getting lot's of the following excerpt in my /home/mailman/logs/error file:

>Apr 16 16:34:02 2002 qrunner(5706):   File "/usr/lib/python2.1/regsub.py", 
>line 20, in ?
>Apr 16 16:34:02 2002 qrunner(5706):      import regex
>Apr 16 16:34:02 2002 qrunner(5706): ImportError :  No module named regex

My configuration, for the record is Red Hat 7, Mailman 2.0.9,  Python 2.1.

I added a symbolic link to to re.py in /usr/lib/python2.1 (thanks to 
whoever suggested this):

cd /usr/lib/python2.1
ln -s re.py regex.py

...and suddenly backlogged mail came gushing out! (Including sundry test 
messages -- be warned!)

As I understand it, re.py has some syntax differences from regex.py, so I'm 
not sure yet if this is a viable fix. I'll let you know if something 
unexpected occurs.
