Thanks much.

It did get me a different error, at least:

If this one has an obvious fix I'd love to hear about it, but if not, it
probably isn't worth any sweat.  We're going to take a different tack
with this, shut down the production list server for a couple of hours
next week to get "non-active" copies of the existing lists for upgrade
testing, then again when actual switchover time comes.

Thanks again,
