Where does value originate and should it match anything within Mailman's
Is there any way to dump the value of self.__tmpfname to the logfile from
the lines above ?
This is what currently appears in the error log:-
admin(648): File "../Mailman/MailList.py", line 817, in __save
admin(648): fname_tmp = fname + '.tmp.%s.%d' % (socket.gethostname(), os.getpid())
admin(648): error: (14, 'Bad address')
I'm assuming that socket.gethostname() is the culprit.
