- permissions (you might look in the error logs if you haven't already)
  Everything ought to work okay as mailman.mailman.

- paths & other defaults
  Try su'ing as mailman, then running 'python -S qrunner'.

- your MTA
  Make sure you can 'telnet hostname 25' okay, and that there isn't anything
  in your MTA log or the smtp log under mailman.

I've had problems similar to the one you're having for all three of the above
reasons.  Sometimes I'd get a log entry or a tracepath, sometimes not.  Your
browser is probably hanging while it waits for an empty page, a page where
the headers have been sent but nothing else.
