this is a bug in Python 2.4.
(search for "Bug#384016: I have this problem too, and it's caused by
python 2.4." with google.groups.com if the above link doesn't work)
The workaround given there seems to solve the problem temporarily.
Replace the first line in /usr/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests
# ! /usr/bin/python
if you have a Python2.3 installed.
As this problem appeared here (debian/etch, Mailman 2.1.8-2) after
upgrading Python 2.3 to 2.4 this seems to be reasonable.
