This will happen to certain administrative messages if General
Options->umbrella_list is set to yes. Could that be it?

That shouldn't matter. The list config changes that would have been
done by the upgrade script will be done anyway the first time the list
is accessed.

If the issue is the umbrella_list setting, I don't know how it would
have changed, or is this a new list?
