Hi folks, thanks for this great piece of software, I just switched from 
majordomo to mailman and that's saved me a lot of time already.

But I've got one error from the cron/checkdbs script and got the 
following e-mail ("Uncaught bounce notification"):
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/cron/checkdbs", line 136, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/cron/checkdbs", line 80, in main
    text += '\n' + pending_requests(mlist)
  File "/usr/lib/mailman/cron/checkdbs", line 123, in pending_requests
    text = NL.join(pending)
UnicodeError: ASCII decoding error: ordinal not in range(128)
I found out that it was because on one list I had some messages waiting 
for confirmation to send. What should be improved?
- this error should not occur, or should be explained it the FAQ
- I still don't know what was the problem, but maybe you can tell me so 
that I can fix it? I had this problem for several days, but as I did 
not find out before why I got this mail could only solve it now.

regards, mike
