I was just editing some archives, and when I tried to rebuild two of
them I got a message like the one below.  Can anyone help me understand
what's going on here?  I made basically the same edits to all the
archives, but only got this error for two of them.

Pickling archive state into
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "bin/arch", line 187, in ?
   File "bin/arch", line 175, in main
     archiver.processUnixMailbox(fp, start, end)
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/Archiver/pipermail.py", line 544, in
     m = mbox.next()

     return self.factory(_Subfile(self.fp, start, stop))

     return mailbox.scrub(msg)

binascii.Error: Incorrect padding

Thanks in advance for any advice,
