[Mailman-Users] But I don't want any Korean

Very frustrating. I had a problem installing a mailman update a few months back on Solaris 10. I posted the traceback, and a very patient person directed me through modifying and repacking Setup.py in KoreanCodecs-2.0.5, and that did the trick.
Now I'm trying to install another update, and I'm getting *Korean* errors again. I tried editing and repacking the Setup.py file like last time, but that didn't do it. So I did some googling and found instructions for editing and repacking hangul.c in KoreanCodecs-2.0.5. That didn't work either.
Is there any way to disable Korean all-together, forever and ever, amen?! It's just so frustrating to waste an entire day working a foreign language issue on a product that will never be used by a non-English speaking person - ever.
Anyway, here's the traceback from the log file...

Thank you in advance for any assistance in either solving the problem, or side-stepping it by disabling Korean support.
