Hi All,

I'm a bit of a newbie in relation to Mailman and Python, but I have 
successfully installed Mailman 2.1b3 on a Sparc/Linux 6.2 (Zoot) box, 
and everything has been peachy until I try to gate mail to news and 
vice versa.

I configured the news server today (innd), and can successfully post 
and read news items I have sent to it.  When the cron job for gate_news 
runs, I get the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 270, in ?
   File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 252, in main
   File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 107, in clearcache
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/nntplib.py", line 552, in quit
     resp = self.shortcmd('QUIT')
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/nntplib.py", line 247, in shortcmd
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/nntplib.py", line 187, in putcmd
   File "/usr/local/lib/python2.2/nntplib.py", line 182, in putline
socket.error: (32, 'Broken pipe')

I've done a search on sourceforge and a quick search on the archives, 
but not a lot there in respect to this.  Could anyone offer a bit of a 
hand here?
