You said in another thread that you're migrating to a Fedora Core
system.  Are you using the Fedora rpm packages of Mailman?  This looks
like a bug in one of the patches that is applied in the Fedora/Red Hat

If you're using the rpms, what version of Fedora are you running, and
what is the version and release of the mailman package?  The changes
I'm thinking of were discussed at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/132495
