Hello All,

I've recently upgraded our Mailman installation to version 2.1.
There is a lot of impressive improvements; but also one 
crontab-run script which crashes in the middle. It's "checkdbs"
which should send reminders about pending requests - here's the
error log I get every morning:

 Cron <mailman at lists> /usr/local/bin/python -S /home/mailman/cron/checkdbs

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/mailman/cron/checkdbs", line 136, in ?
  File "/home/mailman/cron/checkdbs", line 80, in main
    text += '\n' + pending_requests(mlist)
  File "/home/mailman/cron/checkdbs", line 98, in pending_requests
    for id in mlist.GetSubscriptionIds():
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/ListAdmin.py", line 157, in
    return self.__getmsgids(SUBSCRIPTION)
  File "/home/mailman/Mailman/ListAdmin.py", line 149, in __getmsgids
    ids = [k for k, (type, data) in self.__db.items() if type == rtype]
ValueError: unpack tuple of wrong size

Would be grateful for any idea.
Please answer directly to my email and not (only) to the list.
Thanks in advance,
