You may still be able to find an upgrade patch that allows you to
upgrade 2.0.11 up to 2.0.13.  I'm pretty sure those Mailman patches
are specifically designed to be applied to the source.

Upgrade to version 2.1.1 :-)

Feel free to re-invent the wheel.  You might want to simply download the
working code (either from 2.0.13 or from 2.1.1) and steal the parts you
want/need in order to get your install working reliably

Of course, I don't see much of a difference between that and simply
upgrading :-)

Enjoy yourself!
