mailman just started to behave strangely. i have a couple (20-30) lists, and
one or two started to 'now work' all of a sudden. mail sent to that list
i looked in /var/log/mailman/error, and there i found these errors:

May 27 12:02:42 2006 (10050) Uncaught runner exception: unpack list of wrong size

May 27 12:02:42 2006 (10050) SHUNTING:

i have no idea what this means. i sent a couple of emails to this list, and
to others lists on the same mailman, from the same email client (firefox),
through the same server (postfix), and this particular list always gives this

somebody got a hint to what to do? until yesterday, everything was ok. i
don't see any strange updates, or modifications in the packages.

[root at mail mailman]# rpm -qa | grep mailman

[root at mail mailman]# rpm -qa |grep ^python
