I can confirm this. I've tried using twitter-async (PHP) and curl. They return XML or a JSON indicating a successful complete when trying to create a list, but no list is created unless I add a description variable.
Note, this only started happening this week! Earlier this week I used the exact same code and it created a list fine. Something must have changed this week.
