It seems that starting with Mailman 2.1.5, bin/dumpdb can't dump
marshals, only pickles. This is because the DumperSwitchboard() class
has been deleted from Mailman/Queue/Switchboard.py even though it is
still invoked from dumpdb for marshals.

I don't *think* this is the underlying reason for your problem, but I
don't know without looking further.

Perhaps someone else has some info.
