List pressure

Does anybody know what "list pressure" means in this sentence: "List pressure may occur when the door is incorrectly mounted as well"?

Context: In the above paragraphs, they were explaining that, for different reasons, a problem of too high pressure can appear between the door and the door frame giving rise to problems in the door lock mechanism. Then they suddenly talk about this "list" pressure.

Any idea? A mistake may be?

Thanks in advance.

    I had the same thought as The Newt. If the door is incorrectly mounted it will lean (or 'list') unevenly in one direction or another, thereby creating abnormal pressures that impact on the locking mechanism.
