[Mailman-Users] List archive and config problem

OK, the stroy is long, but there may be a lot of reasons for the
problems, so here it goes.

Last week the server running mailman had been upgraded (meaning a
completly new machine with all the data migrated from the old one).

At this time also mailman has been upgraded from 2.1.5 to 2.1.9

Some minor problems appeared, like rights to archives, but they have
been fixed.

Unfortunately, one of the lists set for public archive is creating a
private archive. The WWW admin interface still showed the archive
option set to 'public'. I tried to switch it to private and back to
public and saw this error message:

  Bug in Mailman version 2.1.9
  We're sorry, we hit a bug!
  Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing
  of traceback and other system information has been explicitly
  inhibited, but the webmaster can find this information in the
  Mailman error logs.

I checked the log - there is *some* info, nothing helpful to me, but,
if necessary, I can quote it...

Now even an attemt to log into the admin interface of this list
generates this error message. :(

I run check_db - it says the config.pck file is OK.

List as such is running OK - mails are recieved, delivered and
archived (still in *private* archive directory), only the admin
interface is broken.

Where else should I look for the cause?

If everything else fails it's possible to create a new list and
import as much information from "strings dump" of the pickle file but
I'd rather revive the current one. And fix this damn archiving...
