It doesn't just look like one, it *is* one.  Mailman should *never*
need to shunt because of a Unicode error.

If it's a design bug, it's that Mailman isn't aware of 8-bit
Content-Transfer-Encoding.  It might be that a dain-bramaged MUA or
MTA isn't setting that header, though, and in that case you might want
to Discard, Reject, or Hold rather than deliver (depends on how
"Father Knows Best" you want to be about it).  You shouldn't need to
shunt because of body problems though.
