This is really weird. A few things come to mind. Perhaps data_version in the file is not a integer but Is a string or something with some white space that compares greater than 10 4.

Maybe there is some hardware or system disk caching problem.

If you installed from a package you might contact the packager.

Otherwise you might compare your Mailman/MailList.py and Mailman/versions.py with the ones in the source tarball.
