[Mailman-Users] shunting problem (unpack list of wrong size)

Of our 770+ lists, a couple have some shunting problems (the unshunt
to release queued up messages in the shunt directory). We are still
running v2.1.5 with
plans to upgrade in May, but I was hoping to get a fix for this before then.
The error message we get is:
Mar 23 12:37:33 2006 (19290) Uncaught runner exception: unpack list of
File "/mail/mailman/pythonlib/email/Utils.py", line 337, in decode_params
charset, language, value = decode_rfc2231(EMPTYSTRING.join(value))
File "/mail/mailman/pythonlib/email/Utils.py", line 284, in
charset, language, s = parts
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size
In pouring over the archives, Mark Shapiro wrote (in response to someone
the same problem):
Other lists aren't having a problem because it's probably caused by one
particular list member with a pathological MUA.
And that this is related to the "scrubbing of attachments" for the
digest or archives.
But no one on this list is using the digest feature and archiving is
turned off. Plus
the user in question (the one sending the message) is using a generic
the same one many of our users employ, with no special character set or
options (that I can see anyway).
Any ideas? Would an upgrade to 2.1.7 resolve this problem (I only say
I perused the Mailman mailing list in reverse order from present date,
and this issue
was never raised again by anyone after 2.1.6 came out).
