I did a search through the exim archives and it was suggested that this
be done:

If you still have trouble, try:

exim -d 9 -bt users at warpspeed.net.au

and look in the debugging output for where it is running the
"list_director" director (should be at the end, just before it decides
to send an error message)

In particular, look for sth like:

calling list_director director
require_files = /var/lib/mailman/lists/eng/config.db
test existence of /var/lib/mailman/lists/eng/config.db
  required present, EACCES => unknown

I used my listname of course, and I found the section talked about and
it was a success.
