I don't know what happened to my first attempt to reply to this.
Perhaps I sent it only to the OP (give 'em a vacation and you have to
retrain them).

Anyway, the above is OK. Your followup indicates you have Python 2.1.2.
That's why the 'yield' fails. It requires Python 2.2, but in operation
imports of _compat22 are wrapped in a try which falls back to
importing _compat21 on a syntax exception.

This is OK too. It only means there were no config.pck format changes
from Mailman 2.1.8 to 2.1.9.
