Yes, the issue only occurs for lists with members that have bounce_info.

There are at least three ways around this.

Create your script as a withlist script and run it via withlist (see
bin/withlist --help), or

run your script from Mailman's bin/ directory and 'import paths' at the
beginning of the script, or

copy Mailman's bin/paths.py to the directory from which you want to run
the script, and 'import paths' at the beginning of the script.

It would probably also work as is if you ran it in the mailman/
directory, but I think the other methods are preferable.
