[Mailman-Users] Question about sync_members

Good afternoon. I'm running a new setup of mailman, the version that comes
with Red Hat 8.0. My problem isn't with Mailman per se, but with the
sync_members script that comes with it. 
I am trying to load members from a text file. The file has one email address
per line and contains 2,086 emails. When I run the script using the
following command while logged in as root, "./sync_members -n -w=no -a=no -f
members realtor-members", doing the dry run, everything seems fine. When I
remove the -n parameter to run it live, it gets through 2,043 emails and
then generates the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./sync_members", line 257, in ?
  File "./sync_members", line 240, in main
    welcome, notifyadmin)
  File "/var/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 1054, in ApprovedAddMember
    raise e, v

Now I've looked at the addresses around the one it appears to be dying on,
and they look fine. I have no idea what this is telling me the problem is.
I've looked in the /var/logs/mailman dir to see if I can find any evidence
of what's going on, to no avail. Anyone out there have any idea where I
should start looking to figure this one out? Any help would be appreciated.
