Also Jared, what Mailman version is this? see below.

I'm kind of swamped myself, but I will look further at the patch. On
first inspection, it seems it won't cause any harm and may in this
case produce a good digest, but I think the answer depends on exactly
what the bad message is.

Also, the Mailman 2.1.7 patch to ToDigest.py to catch all send_digests
exceptions should prevent the shunting in this case, although digests
are still stopped, so the current patch or another patch is required
to  get the digest out.
