I had an identical problem, but nobody had an answer for me. 
(Several wanted me to try and debug, but I don't have time to debug broken code
 all day for every app that doesn't quite work right)

I was able to hobble along for many months by just running 
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner -r All &. 

I got it working again 'for real' just recently, by backing up $PREFIX/lists,
purging all semblances of mailman, upgrading python to the latest of everything,
reinstalling mailman and copying $PREFIX/lists back over.

I am not happy with what I had to do to make that work, but it worked.
