After many years of using mailman, and having upgraded to 2.1.9 and
running that for a few weeks, all mailing lists have now stopped
delivering mail.

Never has this happened before. 

I have tried stopping and starting system using mailmanctl but nothing
happens. There are a load of files in qfiles/shunt and the error file
has an entry such as this for each one:-

Nov 26 23:21:11 2006 (5936) SHUNTING: 1162300907.5600309+1c331d7faf6a2e50689a211b17979b4a3d787b14
Nov 26 23:21:11 2006 (5936) Uncaught runner exception: 'str' object has no attribute 'get_sender'
Nov 26 23:21:11 2006 (5936) Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Runner.py", line 112, in _oneloop
    self._onefile(msg, msgdata)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Runner.py", line 162, in _onefile
    sender = msg.get_sender()
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'get_sender'

Tried doing a show_qfile and I get this:-

./show_qfiles ../qfiles/shunt/1162300907.5600309+1c331d7faf6a2e50689a211b17979b4a3d787b14.pck
====================> ../qfiles/shunt/1162300907.5600309+1c331d7faf6a2e50689a211b17979b4a3d787b14.pck
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./show_qfiles", line 95, in ?
  File "./show_qfiles", line 88, in main
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'as_string'

The relevant .pck is attached.

But every single one has the same error.
