I guess you are using the debian packaged version of mailman... It is set
up for /cgi-bin/mailman by default because this way it doesn't need any
changes in the webserver configuration. So access the admin interface on
this url, and remove the cgi-bin part from the base url of the list so you
can access it directly thru /mailman
