This seems related to, but "opposite" the issue of the FAQ at

Possibly the link or URL you are following/visiting to get to the admindb
interface for this list is somehow accessing a different Mailman

Possibly there is some other issue with this list's request.pck or
pending.pck in the /var/lib/mailman/data/mynewlist/ directory. Is there
anything in Mailman's 'error' log?

Do the scripts at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/list_pending> when run
with the -m option and <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/list_requests> show
the held message?

The -1 in heldmsg-mynewlist-1.pck is curious as this number should
increment with each new held message.
