The files config.db and config.db.last are left over from an old
Mailman 2.0.x. When you upgraded to 2.1.x these were converted to the
corresponding config.pck files. I'm sure it has nothing to do with
your problem, but it is a good idea to remove the config.db files
because there is a remote possibility that both config.pck files could
become unusable and Mailman would automatically revert to the outdated
config.db and reconvert it.

If you want to send me the config.pck off list, I'll look at it and see
what I can find.
