We are running mailman-2.1.12-18.el6.x86_64, python 2.6.6, RHEL6. Sometimes when a moderator tries to approve postings, he gets this error:

"Bug in Mailman version 2.1.12
We're sorry, we hit a bug!

Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs."

I have checked the traceback and found the following. What does it mean, and how do we fix it?
