[Mailman-Users] mailman simply *stops* sending messages

After running 'unshunt' I was able to coax the following error from mailman.. which sheds some light on the problem at least, though I am still quite confused as to what the actual problem could be.  The lists in question are all in french if that makes any difference, and many french characters are in the messages, though that's never been a problem before. 

Traceback (most recent call last):
