Sorry, I still can't reproduce the problem. I created a .emacs file
just containing the code you posted:
$ cat .emacs
'("melpa" . "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/") t)
'("marmalade" . "http://marmalade-repo.org/packages/") t)
(dolist (p my-packages)
(when (not (package-installed-p p))
I then started emacs and ran 'M-x list-packages' without a problem.
Are you sure there's nothing else in your various initialization files
that could be interfering with this? Don't forget about default.el,
site-start.el, and .Xresources. ('emacs -Q' excludes all of these.)

Thanks. Nothing in it jumps out at me as problematic.
