it should auto-upgrade. we don't keep installations of old versions around
to do testing on for each version, though, so it's conceivable a bug
slipped in somewhere. knowing which place IMAP_MAILBOX_BADFORMAT is coming
from would be helpful, and output from "strace"ing the imapd may shed some
light on it. you should be able to use imtest to connect, attach strace,
then SELECT by hand and get the error, detach and have an strace session

well, andrew2-webmaster doesn't own the list server itself, but i suspect
if i send you on the real path it will just come back to me anyhow. i'd be
mucch happier if we swapped in mailman for majordomo, but probably that
will happen soon enough anyway.
I just added you by hand. I have no idea what's going on, we have other
recent subscribers, so the service is not generically broken.
