Look in ~mailman/lists/<listname>/.. 
The file request.db has some info in it.  Make sure that the rights are 
correct on it.  You should be able to go the the web-admin and cancel out the 
task.  Failing that, copy an empty request.db from one of your other lists 
over the current one (make sure the rights are correct! after that).

Also check out ~mailman/data and make sure you don't have any held messages 
awaiting approval/disapproval.
