Yes, it is bug #1518281, but this bug is not completely/correctly fixed
until Mailman 2.1.9 and it's associated email 2.5.8 library.

Mailman 2.1.7 and up contain a fix to prevent this type of error,
regardless of cause, from blocking regular delivery, although errors
can still block digest delivery.
