A plan! I will have a look at the wiki to see how I go about moving a
list to another host. Then, tomorrow morning (it's 11pm here), I'll
setup a VM, install the same set of packages and copy over anything
that is closely mailman related.

I did the testing with smtp-sink, which is running just fine. I'll
report back if I can reproduce the problem on the virtual machine.

Ralf just had the idea to cimpare the output from "config_list" to
that of another announce-only list, but apart from owners, messages
and the ususal stuff, there is absolutely no difference.
