The underlying problem is in your web server config. Assuming apache,
you probably have something like
RedirectMatch /mailman[/]*$ /mailman/listinfo
This needs to be anchored as in
RedirectMatch ^/mailman[/]*$ /mailman/listinfo
As a workaround, you can go to
http://email.marmot.org/mailman/admindb/mailman/x which will work
because the 'x' doesn't match in the redirect and it is igmored by the
admindb cgi. I don't recall for sure if the subsequent post will work
or have the same problem.

Yes, you can just delete request.pck (request.db is left over from
pre-2.1.5 and is not used).
There may also have been a pending subscription in pending.pck, but
it's probably expired by now.
