Thus spake Richard Barrett:

+  As it stands, the patch has to be applied to the Mailman source  
+  distribution and there are only versions for MM 2.1.2 and MM 2.1.3
+  That said, it will probably work with earlier versions of MM 2.1 or can  
+  be trivially adapted to work with them. The code changes themselves are  
+  really quite small and could be added by hand to an installed system if  
+  you really wanted to.

thanks for the patch.  i added the patch by hand, but got the
following error while trying to access the admin webpage:

Bug in Mailman version <undetermined>

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

If you would like to help us identify the problem, please email a
copy of this page to the webmaster for this site with a description
of what happened. Thanks!

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/mailman/scripts/driver", line 114, in print_traceback
    from Mailman.mm_cfg import VERSION
ImportError: cannot import name VERSION

i donot understand why i should be getting this. 

instead of the patches in all the files, I decided to add it in the
Default.py alone.  With all the other files as they were, and only
the Default.py patched, i still get the error.  

ps: the patch i am applying is:
