Make sure you have the Chinese codecs for Python installed.  You can 
get them from:


(You will need to download the latest source from CVS and install it.)

It's possible that CJKCodecs will also work, if you don't know how to 
use CVS:


I have not tested CJKCodecs with Mailman, but it might work.

This will let Mailman convert gb2312 subject strings to Unicode, which 
will fix your error.
