It could be that mailman discarded them. Check to see if they're still in
the data directory.

Yup - the bug message is the same problem.

That's the answer right there. The mailman application can't open the
request.db file for write. To fix it when I ran into it:
# chown apache.mailman /var/mailman/lists/*/request.db
# chmod 664 /var/mailman/lists/*/request.db
It worked for me. Whether that was the right answer or only answer I don't
