Please help! Since upgrading to Mailman 2.1.12 and Python 2.6.1, my 
error log is filling up with messages like this and virtually no 
messages are moving through my mailing lists. Based on a search of 
the archives, I removed ALL digest.mbox files and ran unshunt. No 
messages moved and the errors continue.
