Summary: no list identification in cron error mail

Initial Comment:
in the message below from the checkdbs cron job, there
is no identification of the list with the erroneous
`tuple'. it sure would be nice if there was. i ended
up adding a print statement to checkdbs to find out
what it was -- perhaps this could become a -v option to

Finally, it sure would be nice if mailman just dealt
with this problem instead of aborting. Thanks to help
from mailman-users, I can get past it now by removing
any relevant heldmsg's and removing request.db. Seems
like this does not take a human to do. The error has
happened with every mailman migration I've been
involved in.
