No matter what permission I set and copy from other lists that are ok, I
keep getting this error message.  I must have something to do with the .tmp
part fo the request.pck,  But can't figure out why I am still getting it.
Also, when I got to check that list, that file is not there.

Any directions would be greately appreciated. 

Your "cron" job on lists
/usr/local/bin/python -S /usr/local/mailman/cron/checkdbs

produced the following output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
