Yeah, that sucks a bit...
What I ended up doing was dumping the list of users, copied a config.db from
another list,  changed through the  web the fields  that had to  be changed,
removed all the users and re-subscribed the old list of users.
Mailman should  really have some  tool to access  all of config.db  from the
command line.

Thanks for your help,
