This may be a bug, or it may be a defective message. In any case, I
would like to see the message.

Please do the following:

Look at the archives/private/listname.mbox/listname.mbox file and find
the message. Copy the entire message from the .mbox file. If you wish
to elid the actual body parts except for a line or two, that's OK, but
keep all message headers and boundaries and sub-part headers intact.

Then either post that raw message text here or send it to me off list.
