[Mailman-Users] "Lost" a list and now I'm stuck...

I had a system crash recently while a mailing was going out to a list
that has about 11,000 members.
In the mailman/lists directory the list still has its directory, but
instead of the usual:
config.pck config.pck.last request.db
it has just these files:
-rw-rw---- 1 mailman mailman 1670681 Sep 10 16:02 config.pck.safety
-rw-rw-r-- 1 webusers mailman 29 Oct 22 01:44 request.db
The list is no longer showing up in list_lists and check_db runs. It
certainly existed before though!
Can I still restore that list? I'm not sure I have all the subscriber
details still... which would be a real shame to lose, it's a community
site for new mothers (and fathers) for advice and stuff for babies,
parents and young kids to do, etc...
I had to clean out a load of rubbish in the qfiles to stop mailmanctl
barfing a load of errors (Bad Marshal Data) ... sadly I don't have
access to the full errors any more.
