In some cases charset errors have stopped Mailman (not my experience,
but reports on the list).  It's been a while, so I don't recall exact
details and the most recent version (2.1.6) is significantly more
robust to charset problems.

However, any error by definition puts Mailman in an unexpected state.
If you can't directly connect stoppage to those errors, then you'd
better keep looking for alternatives.  I'm not so confident of 2.1.6
that I'd say upgrading immediately is your best bet (but it could help).

Sorry I can't be more precise.
