I did copy the lists/ directories.  Running bin/dumpdb on a new list  
shows this properly set:

[----- start pickle file -----]
<----- start object 1 ----->

     'acceptable_aliases': '\n',
     'admin_immed_notify': True,
     'admin_member_chunksize': 30,
     'admin_notify_mchanges': False,
     'admin_responses': {},
     'administrivia': True,
     'advertised': 1,
     'anonymous_list': False,
     'archive': True,
     'archive_private': 0,
     'archive_volume_frequency': 1,

Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio, replied:
"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull  
his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you  
understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send  
signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that  
there is no cat ."
