I believe I have no rights to the Host's Mailman/CGI directory, so I was
hoping there might be a switch or something like "/no_user" that could
be used to load the options page without the error.

      It can be done - but you would have to hack a file and you many
have the ability to do that.  The error message is found in 
<prefix>/mailman/Mailman/Cgi/options.py .  I'd suggest modifying it to

cover your situation rather than removing it.
