Yes, that's why I'm so puzzled.

Yes, all files and directories belong to mailman, and mailman group.

They both seem consistent. Is there anything in particular I should look 
more carefully?

The old server no longer exists. There's no chance of confusing because I'm 
sending the test mails from the mailman server itself.

As you suggested I did that, but all I found was references to the old IP 
in the archives.

Somehow the old lists are registered somewhere else and the "service 
mailman start" doesn't know where and refuses to start without a 
list called mailman.
