There may still be a config.db.last in the directory
~mailman/lists/<listname>/...  if so, you can copy it over the existing bad
config.db and you will once again be happy.  Though I do suspect that by now
you have made changes in the muggled list and saved them - thus overwriting
the config.db.last...

The moral - Backups are important.  How important?  Well, how important are
your lists?
