I think you must have looked in the wrong dir or something b/c there has
been virtual_mailman and .db file since i first ran genaliases.

I have run this and get the following:
bin/withlist -l -r fix_url mtwg-prayer -u
Importing fix_url...
Running fix_url.fix_url()...
Loading list mtwg-prayer (locked)
Reset a list's web_page_url attribute to the default setting.

This script is intended to be run as a bin/withlist script, i.e.

% bin/withlist -l -r fix_url listname [options]

    -u urlhost
        Look up urlhost in the virtual host table and set the
web_page_url and
        host_name attributes of the list to the values found.  This
        essentially moves the list from one virtual domain to another.

        Without this option, the default web_page_url and host_name
values are

    -v / --verbose
        Print what the script is doing.

If run standalone, it prints this help text and exits.

option -u requires argument
Unlocking (but not saving) list: mtwg-prayer

I have that too in the main.cf file:
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual,
virtual_alias_domains = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
