I've been trying to get this problem resolved for about 1 week now, in the mailman-users list. First I'd like to thank the couple of people there that have been able to shed some light on the issue, but the problem persists and I'm hoping the developers list can steer me in the right direction.
I am not able to view private archives via a user logon. I provided some input on the users list and Jon Carnes kindly mentioned that 2.1.4 fixes a bug related to this issue. He also suggested that I clear out all cookies and restart the browser and try again.
Problem is I have been running 2.1.4 and other than making slight changes to MailList.py, everything else in my system is stock 2.1.4, the tarball the one from Dec 31.
My Python environment, on a SUSE 9.0 system is as follows:
# rpm -qa|grep python python-mysql-0.9.2-52 python-devel-2.3-49 mod_python-2.7.8-427 python-japanese-1.4.9-206 python-curses-2.3-49 python-tk-2.3-49 python-2.3-52 python-korean-2.0.5-212
I even re-installed mailman-2.1.4 just to be sure. I basically re-ran configure, recompiled everything and re-installed. But when I try to access the private archives (via private.cgi/list) mailman dies on me. This is what I get:
Bug in Mailman version 2.1.4

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/local/mailman/scripts/driver", line 87, in run_main main() File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/private.py", line 120, in main password, username): File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/SecurityManager.py", line 226, in WebAuthenticate print self.MakeCookie(ac, user) File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/SecurityManager.py", line 233, in MakeCookie raise ValueError ValueError
I have a client using mailman that is complaining about this problem, and I have not been able to fix it.
Thanks for any input!
