Here is what I did, since I have a number of lists and had no idea what could
be breaking the list index CGI.

I went to ~mailman/lists, and did:
> foreach l (*)       
foreach? diff ${l}/config.db*
foreach? end                                             
Binary files privacy/config.db and privacy/config.db.last differ        
diff: extra operand
diff: Try `diff --help' for more information.
Binary files sfparty/config.db and sfparty/config.db.last differ

ls said that the "root" list between privacy and sfparty was the one that
confused diff.  Hrmmm.  Removed a whole bunch of config.db.tmp.* files in
root/ and moved config.db.last to config.db for good measure, my mailman came
back to me.
