Check VAR_PREFIX in your Defaults.py file and see if it corresponds to
the same setting on the system from which your lists were moved.

Also check all your log files for clues, especially the Mailman error
log.  Log files will frequently contain helpful information above and
beyond what's reported to stdout or stderr.
