What's in Mailman's error log. Do you see the same ImportError causing
the message to be shunted?

It looks as if you ran



 strings /path/to/mailman/cgi-bin/listinfo

as I asked. I don't want you to run the listinfo wrapper, I want to see
what Python it is invoking. I am guessing there is a python in
/user/local/cpanel/3rdparty/ and that that is the Python being used by
Mailman. I'm trying to confirm that or at least confirm that it is
other than /usr/bin/python(2.4). The wrappers contain the path to
Python as a string, and that's what I want to see.
