Is the new partition using reiserfs by any chance?  I don't know whether
Mailman works around the quirk that some versions of Reiser report 0 inodes
available if asked how many are, rather than -1 (the -1 being essentially
"that question doesn't make sense").

I would think that Mailman does work around that by now, though.  No hits in
a quick search of the Mailman FAQ for the file system.
