Dear Mark,
excellent suggestion, indeed there were messages heavily formatted  
which apparently affected mailman and its normal processing of digest  
buffer. There was no need to remove these messages. Re-starting the  
list server did the miracle and both lists are now working fine,  
dispatching the digest-mode messages as intended. Thanks again for  
your help. Issue fixed and closed.
