Environment: Mailman 2.1.12 on Amazon Linux 2012 with Python 2.6.9 and
Virtualmin 4.0.5 GPL

All our lists are under Emergency moderation.
When a moderator goes to process held-messages and select "Preserve
messages for the site administrator", then we see the following 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.

And then we see the following in /var/log/mailman/error file:

Not selecting the checkbox titled: Preserve messages for

PS: Trying to search for the text "We're sorry, we hit a bug!" on
