As I suggested, you can look at mailman/locks/ to see if there might be a stale lock for the list and if so, remove it. Can you access an actual member's options page, or just the options login page? If the former, then the list probably isn't locked. In either case, this shows the config.pck is OK.
OK, great. Yeah, it's the former.
On second thought I'm not sure that getting the user's options tries to lock the list. It may only lock when you "Submit My Changes".
Assuming you're not concerned about losing possible other request like subscription approvals, etc. you can try just moving requests.pck out of the lists/listname/ directory. You may have to do the same with pending.pck. Mailman will create new 'empty' ones when you go to the admindb page.
Subscriptions aren't moderated, so no big deal. However, I noticed that posting to the list seems to have stopped working since I removed all those files. Is this a side-effect of "corrupting" the pending.pck and/or config.pck files And would removing them to create new empty ones "fix" this problem?
Hard to say without knowing the cause. I would investigate the locks.
