[Mailman-Users] Cannot complete actions on held msgs

We recently upgraded Mailman from 2.1.13 on Solaris 10 to 2.1.15 on 
RHEL6.  We are seeing an issue now where when posts are held for 
moderator approval, they show up in the pending requests webpage, but 
you can't take any action on them. Defer/Reject/Allow/Discard... no 
matter what you choose, the page just refreshes without anything 
actually happening.  The kicker is that this only occurs on lists that 
were created in the new environment, the lists that we transferred over 
from 2.1.13 work just fine.

When I delete the heldmsg-<LISTNAME>-##.pck manually, the held message 
disappears from the "held for approval" page.  However, new held 
messages exhibit the same problems.  Other messages sent to the listserv 
that don't ever get held, are delivered to the members just fine.

We've compared config.pck files between an old and new lists and the 
only difference we have seen is that all of the 0's are now "False" and 
the 1's are now "True".
There have not been any HTML changes to the files in question.  We have 
run check_perms and it has come back with NO errors.

Mailman Version: 2.1.15
Python Version: 2.6.6
RHEL Version: 6.2
Kernel Version: 2.6.32-220.13.1.el6.x86_64
Apache Version: 2.2.15

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
