This happens by means of a cron job on lists that exports the various
addresses to eggs.

That cron job calls dbmbuild on eggs, which was apparently aborted
mid-run on February 4th and left a temp file. That temp file caused it
to simply not run anymore (without error message).

I fixed that now, and the -request addresses for these newer lists
should now work. I also added some extra sanity checks so that we don't
have this problem again in the future.
