MM's $prefix/scripts/post delivery script is terminating abnormally  
with an exit code of 1. This may or may not be due to the script not  
being able to correctly identify the list termination of the post. Take  
a look at the script, it is only a few lines of simple Python code with  
comments which say what it is doing.

Are there any entries in Mailman's errorlog file ($prefix/logs/error)  
prefixed with the string post to indicate the nature of the problem?
