Yes. Stop Mailman; remove or move aside the /var/spool/*/*.pck files
you don't want sent, and start Mailman.

Note, if the problem is a stale list lock (see
<http://wiki.list.org/x/noA9>) probably, just removing the stale lock
without stoping and starting Mailman will solve it, but you would
still want to remove or move aside the /var/spool/*/*.pck files before
removing the lock.
