i did delete the locks when the problem begun. but that apparently 
didn;t do much..  now here is what i get:

./bin/dumpdb lists/musiclist/config.pck | grep data_version

doesn't do much.

for ./bin/dumpdb lists/musiclist/config.pck.last

is giving me the help page for dumpdb.

a grep on both files for data_version is not returning anything....
