No. this is not a problem. bin/check_db tries to check all 4 files
whether or not they exist. Mailman 2.1.x does not have the config.db
files. They were used instead of the config.pck files in older

It is unlikely that bin/check_db would find a problem with the
config.pck.last in your situation. This problem is not corruption of
the file contents. It is some issue with the OSX file system that
prevents the config.pck.last file from being removed.
