This posting looks as if you've been bitten by a bug in mailman, where
it terminates postings at lines which contain a single dot character.
It is as if it would treat it like the SMTP end of message body

In September, I've posted about this to mailman-developers list, but
there hasn't been any response. The posting included additional
observations on mailman escaping "From" at the beginning of a line
with a ">" character. It should not do that either before
redistributing messages to subscribers. It breaks the formatting (">"
is the quote prefix) as well as GPG signatures. They have a bugzilla
system, but writing good bug reports takes more time, and I hate
spending time on bug reports when developers are too lazy to comment
briefly on a mail.

Maybe someone with insight reads this and posts a followup to my
message on the mailman-developers list.
