I don't think so.

I think one of your lists have had its config.db corrupted (but I
don't know _why_ that has happened). If so, you can discover which
list is causing you grief like this:
Python 1.5.2 (#6, Dec 1 1999, 20:04:16) [C] on sunos5
Copyright 1991-1995 Stichting Mathematisch Centrum, Amsterdam
>>> from Mailman import Utils, MailList
>>> for name in Utils.list_names():
... print "About to attempt load of list", name
... mlist = MailList.MailList(name, lock=0)
About to attempt load of list list1
About to attempt load of list corrupt-list
Traceback (innermost last):
... indicating that the corrupted list is called "corrupt-list". As
the test aborts once a corrupt list is found, make sure you re-run the
test until it finishes without producing any tracebacks.

This isn't really on topic for this list -- the correct list for such
problems is mailman-users.
Cheap shot at making this post on-topic: Should there be a cron script
(possibly cron/checkdbs will do) to warn the site admin about lists
that have been corrupted?
