OK, I upgraded to MM2.1.  After having to run check_perms with -f to fix 
permissions, I finally got the web pages up.

When I go in as site admin and change the list admin's password for a list, I 
*still* cannot log in as the list admin.  (I still receive the authentication 

And if I go back into the password change page for the list as the site admin, 
and if I put in a new list admin password and have a *different* verified 
password, I receive no errors when I click submit.

However, if I run "change_pw" from the command line, changing the password for 
the list admin for the specific list, them, I CAN log in!  :)

So, it's the web interface that's screwing up.  We're narrowing this one down 
now... I hope!  Any suggestions?
