The patch to SMTPDirect.py which you say you installed causes Pythons
smtplib to write debugging info to stderr which in a normal Mailman
environment is logged to Mailman's error log. Since you are not
getting the debugging information in Mailman's error log, either you
haven't applied the patch correctly or you haven't patched the correct
file (see the last paragraph of
or something is going wrong with logging of stderr writes to the error

I don't think it's likely that the problem is in the logging of stderr
unless this is a Debian issue that I don't know about.
