We are running mailman-2.1.1-5 on a Redhat 9 server.

Recently, (I think on Aug 30) we started getting the following error messages

Subject: Cron <mailman at shad> /usr/bin/python -S /var/mailman/cron/senddigests
X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/sh>
X-Cron-Env: <HOME=/var/mailman>

ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

We had a similar problem a couple of months ago and someone
recommended we

Edit /var/mailman/Mailman/Handlers/Scrubber.py
line 280, changed
         if charset is None or charset == 'us-ascii':
         if charset is None or charset == '' or charset == 'us-ascii':

Then I ran as user mailman
    ./cron/senddigests -l on_the_problem_list

This seemed to fix the problem, but now we are getting a similar problem.

Does anyone have an idea what is happening, and how to fix the problem?

If one list is causing a problem, how can you identify which list is
causing the problem?
