	Hello Adam, i have a trick for solving this. It's a permission problem 
in some mailman's subdirectories. These are the steps:

	(as root)
	1- cd ~mailman
	2- chown -R mailman.root lists locks logs
	3- chmod g+s lists locks logs

	This must solve your problem (i think :-)

NOTE: For "untruster" admins: mailman needs you to enable the cookies to 
	change the configuration of any list.

	Thanks to all for such a good pieze of software.
