In the case of this particular message, Mailman creates the Date:
header using the Python library functions and data indicated in my
reply at

If these Python routines, particularly
email.Utils.formatdate(localtime=1), are returning the expected
results, this is almost certainly, as Brad suggested previously, a
case of needing to restart Mailman to refresh internally stored data.
