As Mark suggested, I removed /var/lib/mailman/.keep, and this resolved 
the immediate errors.

However, upon trying to visit the moderation page for another list, I 
was still getting (a now different) error in my logs about insecure 
permissions on a pickle. Using dumpdb, I found that pending.pck and 
request.pck for the list were corrupt, but config.pck was intact.

Luckily I don't think there was much, if anything, in pending.pck or 
request.pck. So I just removed them, and my list now seems to be back up 
and running. Hooray!

Thanks for your help guys.
