[Mailman-Users] OldStyleMemberships Error

Since upgrading to Mailman 2.1.4 from v2.0.8 I have been getting the below errors in the log whenever a non-member tries to access a non existing account.  They are also presented with the "we've hit a bug" screen which also displays the below information.

Is there some process that I can run to convert all of the "old style memberships" to whatever Mailman wants to stop this and have the person just get a screen that says he's not subscribed?
