Did you add "import japanese" to bin/paths.py or was it already there?

If you added it, you also have to add it to scripts/paths.py and
cron/path.py, and for completeness, tests/paths.py if you have a
tests/ directory, but that is only needed if you run any of the
tests/* scripts.

Also, you needed to do a 'bin/mailmanctl restart' at some point, but I
suspect you may have done that.
