Mailman reverting settings

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone ever seen Mailman revert to an old user list?  This morning we
had out lists VM pounded on from India and hung the box.  After blocking
the ip on our firewall and rebooting the hung vm, everything came back up
except 1 list.  The list appears to have reverted to old settings.  I found
the config.pck file and it does not have the current settings in it.  This
has happened once before.  The box is running Ubuntu 10.04 and Mailman
2.1.13.  Anyone know what would cause this and how to fix it?  We are
working to try a file level restore from a backup.

Thanks,
Grant
