One thing I"ve had to do when moving lists between machines (both running
2.0.9/10), is "newlist" the lists on the destination machine, then overwrite
the $prefix/lists/$listname directories/files and $prefix/archives/private/
$listname files with the tarballs I made from the machine currently hosting
the list.

If I *dont* do this (newlist, then overwrite the "empty" list info files 
with the "real" stuff), I get errors about the lists not existing.

Am I doing something wrong?  I've moved one particular list twice now,
using this method, with no problems...
