Hi all,
This problem is not about mailman, but about the Distutils. I have the 
same bug on Windows. It'is very boring because py2exe needs the 
distutils. The bug needs to be fixed manually in the source of the 
distutils in :
"distutils/dist.py", line 130, in __init__"
The bug is easy to fix (I will post the solution later, if I can found it).
I hope this information will help you.
Nobody else has this bug with the Distutils ?
