That may not be necessary.

I don't think the pending.pck file in an actual pending database at all.

Try running

bin/dumpdb lists/a2-16v-list/config.pck

and see if the output is similar to what you got for the pending.pck. If
so, some how a config.pck got copied to or saved as pending.pck.

In any case, I probably won't be able to tell how the corruption
occurred, but I don't think it's due to a Mailman bug.
