[Mailman-Users] Messages shunted with "TypeError: decoding Unicode is not supported"

I'm having trouble sending a message from one of my lists using  
Mailman 2.1.11. The message itself is entirely ascii and sent with the  
US-ASCII charset, but it's failing with a "unicode is not supported"  
error. My (extremely unsophisticated) reading of the error log leads  
me to believe that the problem ise happening when the footer is  
applied to the message, but the footer text is also ascii.

Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated!

 From the error log:

Oct 27 05:15:16 2008 (2734) Uncaught runner exception: decoding
