I believe that Mailman 2.1.9 requires Python 2.4, preferably the 
latest release of Python 2.4.  When they went to Python version 2.5, 
my understanding is that they broke some things that Mailman depends 

I believe that Mailman 2.1.10 will probably be compatible with Python 
2.5, but until then your only choice is to either downgrade the 
system to Python 2.4, or to install a second copy of Python 2.4 and 
rebuild Mailman to explicitly point to that alternative version.
