I assume you are no longer getting errors from cron/checkdbs. What
happens if you put the request.pck back and try to go to the admindb
page for the list? Does this produce the error? If not, does it update
the request.pck? If so, this may fix the problem.

If none of this helps, or if you have a new request.pck with requests
since removing the old one, you could try bin/dumpdb on the
request.pck files to see what's in them, although I'm not sure how you
would use this information if you couldn't use the files themselves.
