The mail list Save() method effectively moves the current config.pck to
config.pck.last and saves a new one (it's more complicated than this
for safety, but this is the effect). Thus, every time any list
attribute is changed and saved (i.e. whenever a post is processed or
the admin or admindb interfaces are changed or a member changes
options, etc., etc.), a new config.pck is created with 'standard'
