The above message indicates the traceback was written to some 'error'
log, just not the one you're looking at.

You can always edit (temporarily) Mailman's scripts/driver and at line
33 change




and that will allow the traceback and other diagnostic info to be
displayed instead of the "We're sorry, we hit a bug!" message.

It was successfully written to an 'error' log somewhere or the "We're
sorry, we hit a bug!" message would say:

"Mailman experienced a very low level failure and could not even
generate a useful traceback for you.  Please report this to the Mailman
administrator at this site."
