when i try to start mailman with the script copied in /etc/rc.d/init.d, i 
get the following error over and over:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner", line 270, in ?
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner", line 230, in main
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Runner.py", line 59, in run
    filecnt = self._oneloop()
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Runner.py", line 88, in _oneloop
    msg, msgdata = self._switchboard.dequeue(filebase)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Switchboard.py", line 144, in 
    data = self._ext_read(dbfile)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Queue/Switchboard.py", line 246, in 
    dict = marshal.load(fp)
EOFError: EOF read where object expected

i have redhat 7.3, with python 2.2.1 installed, and mailman-2.1.2. the web 
interface is up and running, cron file is installed, check_perms is ok.
could somebody tell me, what these errors mean, and how can i correct 
them? btw, i did and upgrade from mailman-2.0.3, which was running fine.
