I've just taken over an existing mailman list and I'm hitting a rather 
annoying problem I hope someone can help me with. When I go to the web 
admin list and select "Tend to pending moderator requests" it takes ages 
then times out. I saw 1000s of pending requests in data/, assumed the 
previous list admin had not kept up with moderator requests and so used 
discard to get rid of them. The discard worked fine but afterwards the 
web admin page still timed out. I tried dumping the request.pck file and 
it was huge and took ages to dump. I'm only guessing but I think someone 
may have deleted holding files from data/ and not used discard. Is there 
any way to rebuild the request.pck file?
