I've got this working with no problems.  Here are the versions of the
software I'm running:

mailman 2.0.8
sendmail 8.12.0 (plus some patches)
Apache: 1.3.20 (plus some patches)

I'm running the Apache server as nobody, sendmail is set-gid to smmsp
as recomended and mailman has its own account.

Did you check the logs for any error messages?  Did you have a running
SSL server before trying mailman?  Did you check the ownership of the
CGI programs?  Does your SSL server run as the same UID as the regular server?

In general, everything is very vanilla on my systems, modulo lots of
security patches.
