Your diff and the smtplib.py (the file you refer to above as
smtplib.py.1) you posted to the bug report confirm that this file is
essentially unchanged from the Python 2.3 base smtplib.py.

Therefore, I have to conclude that the symptom you see when you put
this in the Python library is due to the debug writes being to stdout
instead of stderr.

Thus, I think you still have the added


line in SMTPDirect.py. I think if you remove this line and then put the
original smtplib.py back in the python library (and to be sure, remove
the smtplib.pyc and smtplib.pyo to force a recompile), Mailman will
continue to send OK.

If this is the case, the original problem will have magically
disappeared. The only reason I can think of for this is that the
update that caused the problem may have had a corrupted smtplib.pyc
and/or smtplib.pyo.
