Well . . . I don't vouch for this solution, as I can't get Mailman
to work on my box yet (it seems to run just fine, but nothing gets
remailed through my test list yet . . . there seems to be some
configuration issue in regards to adding subscribers to a list, or
interacting with Exim) but if you change the instantiation call on
line 206 of Message.py to remove the extraneous parameter:

   self['Subject'] = Header(subject, charset, header_name='Subject')

I can get through running 'newlist mailman', and quite a bit of the
user interface with nothing breaking.

Seeing as that classes __init__ didn't have a formal parameter of
the given name anyway, no real information should be lost by this

But, again, I'm not a Mailman developer . . . just a programmer
who knows Python.
