Check your syslog file.  What's probably happening is that the gid
compiled into your Mailman CGI wrapper is incorrect and the wrapper is 
exiting.  This error will show up in syslog.

You'll need to figure out the gid that CGI scripts get executed as
(check your Apache config files) and re-configure Mailman using
--with-cgi-gid option, rebuild and re-install.
