Ah, the culprit is me.  I put a line of debugging in the "try:" block  
some months ago when I added Stanford Webauth code to mailman.
That line of debugging was called every time when __save is called. It  
appears useless now, but I could not remember why I put it there in  
first place.

I removed that line, all look good. I felt better.

Thanks a lot!
