It's possible, but it may not be a problem with Mailman. Mailman only
needs to get a little ways into its driver script for it to be able to
give you better error reporting. It's possible that it's a gid
problem, and for that, the web server logs should make that
immediately clear. But if it only happens for the admindb pages and
not the other cgi's, I don't think that's it.
Without more detailed tracebacks or error messages, we'll just be
shooting in the dark.
