After a couple of months with no problems, today my messages to a 
mailing list appear to be getting turfed by mailman.

Mailman 2.1.1, yellow dog linux 3.0.1, postfix

Maillog indicates the message goes to Mailman.

The Mailman error log has:

Oct 11 22:50:15 2004 (953) Uncaught runner exception: decoding Unicode

Oct 11 22:50:15 2004 (953) SHUNTING: 

the message I'm trying to post comes from Mail 1.3.9, Mac OS 10.3.5, 
with mail preferences set to use plain text for message composition. I 
don't understand where the unicode is supposed to be coming from.

Any help appreciated!
