Strange, I can't find it in my b8 distribution:

  octarine$ tar tvzf mailman-1.0b8.tgz |grep -i populate

However, add_members is there:

  octarine$ tar tvzf mailman-1.0b8.tgz |grep -i add_member
  -rwxrwxrwx 1078/1000      6237 Jan  9 20:17 1999 mailman-1.0b8/bin/add_members

I have installed my b8 over installs of various previous versions, so
I still have populate_new_list in my bin/ directory -- however, it is
much older than add_members:

  $ ls -l /local/Mailman/bin/populate_new_list 
  -rwxr-xr-x   1 mailman  mailman      3203 Nov  9 10:49 /local/Mailman/bin/populate_new_list
  $ ls -l /local/Mailman/bin/add_members 
  -rwxr-xr-x   1 mailman  mailman      6237 Jan 28 14:19 /local/Mailman/bin/add_members

Did you try using add_members instead of populate_new_lists?  Did it
work better?
