	Last Friday i had the same problem that Javier had on 
May, so here is my posting about it. I solved it by exporting the 
LANG environment variable to "C", i.e. for bash shell: 
$ export LANG=C

	I was upgrading from 2.0.6 to 2.1.3 mailman version in a 
Red Hat Linux 9.0 distro with a 2.4.22 kernel.

	From that moment the problem didn't came back.

	Thanks to all and sorry if the mail is not important.
