[Mailman-Users] Newsrunner infinite loop

I have a mailman 2.1.11 installation running about 1000 mailing lists.
Each of them is bi-directionally gatewayed via NNTP.
I have been hitting the following scenario:
Email 'a' is made of a text body and email 'b' as a text attachment.
Email 'b' is made of a text body and another non-text attachment.
Posting email 'a' to any mailing list gets email a distributed to all
the mailing list members but puts NewsRunner in the following infinite
loop (1 traceback per second. Needless to say, the posting never makes
it to the newsgroup)
Aug 13 14:36:30 2008 (25129) Uncaught runner exception:
Aug 13 14:36:30 2008 (25129) Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Queue/NewsRunner.py", line 86, in
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/nntplib.py", line 600, in quit
resp = self.shortcmd('QUIT')
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/nntplib.py", line 260, in shortcmd

resp = self.getline()
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/nntplib.py", line 207, in getline
if not line: raise EOFError
Any hint about what may cause this ?
