Hi -

	I've been running Mailman 2.1b2 for a year or so without a hitch;
but a couple of days ago the machine was literally inadvertently unplugged
from the wall (actually, they lost power to our whole data center with the
UPS offline). Since, the problem below has shown up. I'm sure that there
is some corrupt data, but I don't know where to start looking. Any

Bug in Mailman version 2.1b2
