OK. I'm having a go at this. I'm not sure how that's supposed to work, 

I've built Mailman 2.1.6 with Python 2.4.1, and it didn't work when 
installed with Python 2.4.1, and run along side Python 2.4.1

I've built Mailman 2.1.6 with Python 2.2.3, and it works fine. Doesn't 
matter whether I have Python 2.2.3 or 2.4.1.

I'm trying again - but why would config.status do anything?

Well, blimey. Everything seems hunky-dory now. Thanks, Barry!
