I was reminded of this thread when I came across what appears to be the same
bug on the Tahoe list:


Notice multiple posts in threads they don't look like they belong to, as
well as many threads which have nonsensical levels of indentation.

I'm not sure if anyone ever answered your question about twisted-python's
mailman installation being "stock" or not.  If not, then I think I can
confirm that it is.  There is also no configuration that would alter this
behavior, as far as I know.  We've probably set a few options via the admin
interface, but I don't think any of those should affect this behavior.
