I am having a hard time going to
http://lilpup.mymachine.com/mailman/archives, whenever I do it generates:

We're sorry, we hit a Bug in Mailman version 2.0.6

Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but
the webmaster can
bugfind this information in the Mailman error logs.

I have freshly installed mailman 2.0.6 on a FreeBSD 4.4-RC and a 4.3-STABLE
machine, making sure I followed the INSTALL file to the letter, and I can't
seem to get to that page. I always get a traceback logged in my error log
file, which reads:

I have posted some articles to a test list, and it seems that everything is
being created correctly in /home/mailman/archives/public/. Everything else
about this server that I've tested so far works wonderfully.

I have searched the web for this problem, and I have found that there are a
number of active mailman servers with this same error. Is this an Apache
mis-configuration? I have seen this same problem from people using versions
of mailman going all the way back to 2.0beta1, so I am inclined to think it
is a server-config problem, not a bug within mailman but i really do not
know. Any and all help with this problem is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
