Here's one way.

[mark at sbh16 ~]$ /path/to/bin/withlist -i
No list name supplied.
Python 2.4.3 (#1, Sep  3 2009, 15:37:12)
[GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-46)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from Mailman import mm_cfg
[mark at sbh16 ~]$

You type the command with the correct path to Mailman's bin/withlist.
Then you type the two lines after the '>>>' prompts. In your case, the
response should be True or 1. At the third prompt, type control-D.

Another clue is whether the timestamp on mm_cfg.pyc is more recent than
that on mm_cfg.py, although this isn't always definitive due to
possible permission issues.
