Hello list,

I wasn't able to find any workable solution for the following problem.
BTW: the gnu.org guys seem to have a similar problem. Just have a look
at the archives of the "mailman" list.

Some lists are no longer (worked before - no configuration or software
update occured) delivered. All messages are shunted. The errorlog says
the following:

We're using python-2.3.5 and mailman-2.1.5-r4 (the r4 comes from the gentoo ebuild).

Thank you very much for every reaction (and be it a RTFM with URL!).
