It happened to me using one of the v1.0 (long time back).  I traced
it down to something being corrupted in the pickled list DB, but
couldn't find out how it got there.  I wasn't enirely worried that
it was Mailman's fault at the time as the machine was rather less
than stable and it could have been simple filesystem corruption from
having to be fscked every other day.
