Hi all,

I am in the process of migrating my mailman installation from a 
HP-UX 10.20 system with python 1.6 to a HP-UX 11.0 system with 
python 2.1. I recompiled mailman from 2.0.10 sources on the new
system and did a check_perms. Everything seems to be ok, but if
I try to access http://localhost/mailman/admin I get the following

Apr 18 13:32:45 2002 admin(5623):

Can somebody help me in solving this?
