Hi guys
I had everything up and running for mailman untill I encountered this
problem yesterday. I am trying to access the admin pages for one of the
lists that I created. It prompts me for a password and then I enter the
admin password for that list and then it gives me the error:
Bug in Mailman version 2.0.12

We're sorry, we hit a bug!
Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but
the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

When I look at the error log I see the following error:
Type Error:not enough arguments for format string and the detailed log is

admin(5878): [----- Mailman Version: 2.0.12 -----]
