[Mailman-Users] UnpicklingError: pickle data was truncated

Problem solved.  Emptying out the shunt directory was all that I needed.
Thank you for your help, I just inherited this box a week ago and
haven't had time to look at the documentation much.

Unshunt doesn't remove them, it reinjects them into the queue. Was this
what you did? You want to actually 'rm' the various '.pck' files in
e.g., /var/lib/mailman/qfiles/shunt/ (or, perhaps, they might not have
made it to /shunt/. You can 'mv' *all* of the queue files away, and put
them back in one at a time to see which one is breaking.)

I'm not sure of how to unpickle, someone else on the list should be able
to help, here. Which brings me to...

P.s., please CC the list on all replies. :)
