Unfortunately, that was a misleading hint. The shunted message has been
requeued in the shunt queue by 'enqueueing' it again, so it doesn't
really reflect the original entry.

I suggest you try my corrected workaround.

which should at least get things going. Then you can run bin/unshunt to
reprocess the shunted messages.

After that, you can try briefly stopping Mailman, then sending a
message to a list or list-bounces address and then move the resulting
queue entry out of the 'in' or 'bounces' queue for analysis, and
restart Mailman.

That queue entry should have _parsemsg = True.
