This is the funny part. I have backups from the time when it was
working just fine, but when I copy them into place, they give the
same errors. This is really weird...

Is there any way to uncorrupt the file or figure out what happened
with them? As I see from the logs, it's every single one of my
lists. I don't think this is really a problem with the files, but
rather with Mailman...

I have put two affected lists at


Are they really corrupted?
