[Mailman-Users] MM2.1 daily checkdbs traceback

FYI - i traced this down to a corrupt requests.db file for one of my
lists that had a pending subscription request before the 2.1 upgrade.
It seems that ListAdmin.py's __opendb function attempts to upgrade the
db file, but somewhere during my 2.1 install it looks like the
requests.db file was partially upgraded - ie, it didn't have the full
name field added, but it did have the version field.   Therefore,
opendb didn't try to add the full name field.   I was able to look at
the pending submission via 'strings requests.db' and then just kill
the file, and now checkdbs runs fine.
