Auke, did you report this as a bug to the Mailman devs?  Seems like that
would be the best course of action.  Oddly, ISO-2022-JP is indeed a
valid encoding, so I'm not sure why it's throwing out "invalid
designation".  Seems to me that the mailman code should be doing error
checking (with the python equivalent of perl's 'eval' [1]) to handle
that properly and move on.

As a temporary measure, can you disable all digest delivery, perhaps by
forcing all xfce-i18n users to normal delivery?  I'm not sure if that
would fix the problem, but I would guess (hope) that mailman doesn't try
to do charset mangling/conversion for normal mail delivery.
