[Mailman-Users] Spam Filter disappearing

Hello everyone!

I did do a search on my question, and I found a solution, but I'm not  
sure how to work it.

I'm running Mailman 2.1.5 under Mac OS X Server 10.4.3. We've just  
made the full move to Mailman (from an OS 9 product), and of course  
are being inundated with spam and are working on creating filters.  
Some of our spam filter sets for lists have been vanishing, and a  
post in the archives indicated that this was fixed in 2.1.6.

Since I'm running under OS X, I haven't done any upgrades to Mailman  
for fear of things being broken when the next Apple OS update comes out.

Is there any way I can just apply a fix for this issue? The  
Sourceforge site seemed to have an updated Privacy.py file, but it  
also indicated in the comments that the way it was fixed required an  
awful hack, so I'm not extremely keen on just popping it there.

Is there any way short of trying to upgrade to the latest (which I  
believe is 2.1.9) that I can remedy the filters vanishing? Thanks in
