I'm fighting with a bad message in one of my lists.  I click on 
"Tend to pending moderator requests" on the admin page and get the
"We hit a bug!" page that dumps with 

UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)

I know i've got a bad char somewhere in a held message, but when I
move all the heldmesg-* files for that list out of /mailman/data
I still hit the problem!

What am I missing?  Where else is the data stored and how can i nuke
so the list will work again?
