[Mailman-Users] Messages just began to be shunted, can't figureout why.

It appears to be affecting all the lists, although they are of such low volume,
that nothing else has been posted since.

I will install the latest version of python and report back, although I
understood from the download/requirements page that python 2.1.x and 2.2.x
would work. But looking at that page again, it says "as of 29-Aug-2006" so it
may very well be out of date.

Here's the error log file entry from the test message, to update the case

I really appreciate your tracking this down. I'll report back asap after the
python upgrade. -Gary
