The list digest.mbox has accumulated to be sent a new digest and begin
to process then encounter this error. So, the new message is not
relevant to this but there is an offending message in the list
digest.mbox. Go to the <prefix>/lists/<listname> and rename digest.mbox
to digest.mbox.bad (or something). Then try exec <prefix>/bin/unshunt.

As I am maintaing Scrubber.py, I will be nice if you can send me the
offending message if it can be identified.
