Mailman maintains a current version of its config file and a backup 
that is one generation older. It sounds to me like the current config 
is corrupt and it is falling back on the backup.

This should show up in the logs, probably the error log or maybe qrunner.

Something you can try is to run bin/dumpdb on the config.pck and 
config.pck.last files for that list to see if it throws an exception 
or reports a problem.
