This is not Mailman 2.1.6 as distributed by the Mailman project. Our
2.1.6 Hyperarch.py contains only 1297 lines and no RSS method.

That said, it looks like there might be a problem with the last message
in the archive. I suggest looking in the listname.mbox/listname.mbox
file for a message with Message-ID: containing
356461.34359.qm at web50307.mail.yahoo.com.

If you can see anything strange about this message or its Message-ID:,
try 'fixing' it or removing it from listname.mbox/listname.mbox and
running 'bin/arch --wipe listname' again.
