This error has nothing to do with the other. It appears to be generated
by the process of posting a message to a list (i.e., the process
appears to be the 'post' wrapper), but a standard Mailman 2.1.4
installation has no script named mailowner. The posting script is
named 'post' and the deliver to -owner script is named 'owner'.

The statement

    msg = Message.Message(sys.stdin)

at line 55 in the mailowner script can't ever work. This is not
something that can work 'sometimes'. Message.Message() takes no
arguments, period, end of story.

What kind of installation is this?

And this is a totally separate error which is that the admindb module
running as a cgi (and called from the admin page) encounters a
MemoryError exception in the process of trying to build the html web
page to display.
