 Here was the problem : there are two 'python' on the test machine I
use. The one for the system, and mine for a self dependant package I
want to build.

 The local python is used when I create new mailing list or when I
update the site password. And my python is used by the cgi's. Of
course, the two version use different crypt library...

 I changed the PATH (for command line operations) and everything works
