Glad you found a work around.  I had hoped to setup an F7 install to
verify this, but haven't had a chance to do that yet.  It seems like a
problem that should be bugzilla'd.  I know the mailman maintainer is
usually on top of things (though sometimes busy and thus slow to
respond).  But he may have better insights as to what's wrong and/or
how to fix it.
