Something is very strange. The line #s in the above trace don't
correlate with the 2.1.4 scripts/driver. Also there is no "import
xml.sax.saxutils" in this file and Mailman doesn't import
xml.sax.saxutils ( a Python library module) anywhere that I can see.

Possibly scripts/driver has been replaced and/or something is wrong
with the wrappers in cgi-bin/
