Sorry for being cryptic. By "command line?" I meant what was the
command line you typed?

And did you run the withlist -r fix_url command as the mailman user?

In what context? I.e. what URL or command is reporting no list?

You could try

mv config.pck config.pck.2.bak
mv config.pck.last config.pck

If there is a problem with the config.pck, this may help. It will undo
whatever was done at Sep 29 00:41, but I'm not yet convinced there is
a problem with the config.pck.
