No, it's a user interface issue.  list_lists is displaying the published name of the list;
Eng223's internal list name is eng223; Eng223 is just the "pretty" name, which can be
set on the admin page.

list_members, however, expects the internal name of the list.  There is no "Eng223" directory
with a marshalled database.  However, if you'd done a list_members eng223, you'd either get
a list of subscribers, or just a blank line showing there were none.
