If you're willing to accept that the only messages that have unexpired
tokens left in pending.pck are those newer than PENDING_REQUEST_LIFE
which defaults to 3 days, you can use the method suggested in the FAQ

 $ cd ~mailman
 $ find data -name heldmsg-<listname>-\* -print | xargs bin/discard

but make it

 $ cd ~mailman
 $ find data -name heldmsg-\* -mtime +3 -print | xargs bin/discard
