[Mailman-Users] Kernel update breaks Mailman!!

I'm running Mailman 2.1.15 on a Ubuntu server, feeding into Courier MTA,
running Python 2.7.3.  I track security updates and install them
promptly when they're issued by Ubuntu.  Yesterday I updated the Linux
kernel from 3.2.0-58-generic (x86_64) to 3.2.0-59-generic and Mailman
quit working.  List posts made it through to the archives, and were
apparently queued within Mailman, but wouldn't go out.  The mail server
was working OK for non-list email. Today I backed out the kernel update
and posts to lists sent yesterday and today are going out without

I can find nothing in the Mailman logs, or in the mail server logs,
indicating a problem.  

This is the first time I've ever had a problem with a server kernel
update breaking something related to mail.  Has anyone else seen this
problem?  Does anyone have any insight into how to address it?
