[Mailman-Users] moderators not getting notified & private archives not found

I just installed Mailman 2.1.1 and my users are reporting problems.
First, list moderators are not getting notified to approve posts. Here's the
settings for the lists I'm having problems with:
"Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action
is defined." = Hold
"Should messages from non-members, which are automatically discarded, be
forwarded to the list moderator?" = Yes
"Should the list moderators get immediate notice of new requests, as well as
daily notices about collected ones?" = Yes
list administrator = mk at soe.ucsc.edu (password set)
list moderator = mk at soe.ucsc.edu (password set)
Are there other settings that effect moderator notification? Mail is coming in
and going out fine, and posters are getting notified their messages are held for
approval. But moderators are not being emailed to approve non-member postings.
Second, I had to tweak Mailman/Cgi/private.py to work around a "Private archive
file not found" error. The call to guess_type(path, strict=0) seems broken on
my install of Mailman, so here's what I used instead (from my tweaked
# Authorization confirmed... output the desired file
# ctype, enc = guess_type(path, strict=0)
# if ctype is None:
ctype = 'text/html'
f = open(os.path.join(mlist.archive_dir() + '.mbox',
mlist.internal_name() + '.mbox'))
ctype = 'text/plain'
f = gzip.open(true_filename, 'r')
f = open(true_filename, 'r')
msg = _('Private archive file not found')
syslog('error', 'Private archive file not found: %s', true_filename)
print 'Content-type: %s\n' % ctype
Anyone seen this problem? Is my Mailman or Python install broken?
Any advise or help really appreciated.
