It's not due to it being Japanese.  I've run Japanese lists for years
with no such effect.

That's incorrect, and it sounds like the digest file is not being
deleted properly.  Deleting a file requires write access to the
containing directory, not to the file, so it's possible for the file
to be appendable but not deletable.

Ask the host to run Mailman's check_perms script.
