Did you write that correctly?  That's very old.

Was it just one message, or is the fault repeatable?

Look and see if there's anything in the qfiles/shunt directory
(usually in /var/lib/mailman/, I believe).  While you should normally
get some information in the Mailman logs, I have seen Unicode errors
where the message got shunted and somehow nothing was logged (but only
in versions of Mailman < 2.1.10 or so, so my question about your
version matters).
