Oddly enough, I sent you an answer to a very similar question on
Aug 26  :)


However, instead of setting m.members and m.digest_members to nothing,
set m.requests to nothing:

   > python -i $prefix/bin/withlist -l [listname]
   >>> m.requests={}
   >>> m.Save()
   >>> ^D

This will remove all pending messages for a given list.
