My 2.1.7 upgrade produced the same error that mcnutt got, but only for a 
few of many lists.  I followed the above advice and removed request.pck, 
but what do I do now to return the pending requests so that all the 
individual list admins can address them? (is this even possible?)

All help is sincerely appreciated, and I want to echo Glenn Sieb's 
earlier comments on the overall lack of problems that Mailman has given 
me.   I too have been running Mailman for 5+ years, and the upgrades are 
generally painless and easy to deal with.  Kudos to the developers for 
all their skilled work, which is the true reason that Mailman works so well.
