I'm glad the script worked for you.

I have mentioned this issue to the Debian people who are responsible for
the Mailman package, but it might be helpful if you report your
experiences to Debian. They don't seem to realize that they are
potentially causing this pain for large numbers of users of their
Mailman package.

While I have "fixed" <https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/1462755>,
that fix will not be released until 2.1.21 (soon I hope) and it only
addresses the symptom and only in one place. Potentially, other strings
can cause the same issue.
