First of all, when withlist tells you

Loading list LISTNAME (locked)

It is telling you that it loaded the list named LISTNAME and locked it
because you gave the '-l' option to withlist which tells it to lock the
list which it has to do if it's going to make any changes.

So what were the "bunch of errors"?

Note if the list is really in a locked state and withlist couldn't
acquire the lock, see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/noA9>.
