I just had a similar problem with 2.0.8 and postfix running on 
debian.  First, check your $prefix/logs/error file and look for something 
that looks like an access violation on your *.db files.  If you see that, 
or even if you don't, try checking the owner and groups of that file.  It 
should be accessible by user "mailman".  Just try reading that file as the 
mailman user.  If you can't, there's a permission problem.  The problem I 
had was that the user mailman was not a member of the group 
"mailman".  Oops.  Good luck, hope that helps.
