So, it seems that even though the lists/net-avengers-3/request.db is
not large, it is corrupt in some way that causes unmarshaling to throw
the MemoryError.

I would just rm the lists/avengers-3/request.db file (and the remaining
heldmsg-net-avengers-*.pck files if any). The requests.db file will be
recreated as needed.
